LSUS Ranked 6 out of 25 Schools for Top Online Colleges Offering Teaching Degrees in ESL

December 09, 2016

LSU Shreveport has been ranked in the SR 2017 Top Online Colleges for Teaching Degrees in ESL (English as a Second Language).
The 25 online colleges and universities are the top schools for ESL degrees. These schools provide a combination of affordable tuition and academic rigor.

LSU Shreveport offers the online M.Ed. Curriculum and Instruction with an ESL Specialization that can be completed in as little as 24 months.

The SR Education Group states "This ranking is based on value. We analyzed accredited online schools across the nation, taking into consideration academic strength factors along with annual tuition rates in order to provide a list of colleges offering the best value to students. Making it on this list shows high academic standards and a commitment to affordability, two key factors important to prospective students."

Through engaging course content and required hands-on field experience in schools and classrooms, students develop the knowledge and skills to effectively tackle two challenges: helping English language-learners master English, and helping them succeed in academic courses taught in English.

The LSUS program prepares students for many job opportunities, including Department of Defense teachers, ESL K-12 teachers, ESL adult teachers, and teachers of English abroad.

The MEDCI in ESL offers:
 A foundation in linguistics and the influences on language learning
 Training techniques for strengthening reading, writing, and listening skills for English language learners

LSUS is also accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

The SR Education Group strives to be the most authoritative online resource to help students choose the best school for their career aspirations and budget via a free and easily accessible website.
