Reading/Language Arts Course Format Options

Note: Visit the Reading/Language Arts Programs page for information about the four programs we offer.


The Reading/Language Arts programs offer various options for course delivery: Face-to-Face, Hybrid, and Online.

Face-to-Face

The Reading/Language Arts programs offer traditional face-to-face class options where students meet for the majority of the semester face-to-face with the professor and other students on campus.

Hybrid

The Reading/Language Arts programs offer blended learning options, or hybrid courses. Hybrid courses combine face-to-face classroom methods with computer-mediated activities, thus creating an integrated approach for both instructors and students. Hybrid courses are offered at both the Grand Rapids campus and the Detroit Center.

Online

Since Fall 2013, the Reading/Language Arts program offers fully online programs, inviting students near and far to earn an M.Ed. in Literacy Studies from Grand Valley State University. For more information on our Literacy Studies online program, please contact Elizabeth Stolle (stollee@gvsu.edu).
