— The University of Georgia's College of Education is launching a new online master's degree in reading education.

The graduate program is the third at UGA where students can take classes entirely online. The university also offers an online master's in adult education entirely online.

The new program will focus on digital-based literacy. It's designed to meet the needs of already certified teachers who are unable to travel to Athens for face-to-face coursework.

The two-year program will accept 20 students each fall of even-numbered years. Students will take two courses per semester for six semesters.
