Program Coordinator: Joseph Sobol, PhD.D. 423-439-7863, firstname.lastname@example.org
If, after completion of the Storytelling Certificate, a student subsequently applies and is admitted into a M.A. in Reading with a concentration in Storytelling, all 21 credits from the certificate may be approved for transfer into the M.A. Reading program.
