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.

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).
