Department of Education

Introduction and Overview


Welcome to the Department of Education at LSU Shreveport. The Department offers a variety of programs which are intended to provide initial and advanced training for school professionals.

Currently, we have programs in Early Childhood Education (PreK-3), Elementary Education (grades 1-5); and Secondary Education (grades 6-12), including teaching majors in Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics, Physics, and Social Studies. Elementary and Secondary Education programs in Fine Arts and Foreign Languages (French and Spanish) are also offered. 

Our alternate certification program means a shorter route to certification. TeachLSUS, our post-baccalaureate alternate certification program, offers programs in Elementary Education and the previously mentioned Secondary Education areas.

Add-on course work is offered via undergraduate and graduate levels.  Currently, we offer additional endorsements in the areas of:  Special Education - Mild/Moderate, Library Science, Gifted, Reading Specialist, Educational Technology, English as a Second Language (ESL), and Secondary Content.

Our graduate programs continue to attract quality students and offer the flexibility to allow numerous options to those students. Four advanced degrees are offered: Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction (MEDCI), Master of Education in Educational Leadership (MEDL), Master of Education in School Counseling (MEDSC), and Doctor of Education in Leadership Studies (EDDLS).
