LSSU offers a Master of Arts degree in Curriculum and Instruction. As LSSU's only graduate program, it focuses on professional development issues often associated with certified teachers. The program will be open to all qualified candidates, teacher certification is NOT a prerequisite.
THERE IS NO ADMISSION DEADLINE for the graduate program, you may apply at any time and begin enrollment in graduate classes at the start of next semester.
Graduate courses are open to any qualified student within the limits of the admission policy. Candidates may complete not more than 50% of the graduate program requirements prior to admission. LSSU courses completed during the student teaching internship can be used in our graduate program (up to six in the core requirements and six in the elective category), again within the limits of the admission policy.
Working with a graduate advisor, candidates may incorporate the graduate credits earned through the LSSU student teaching internship, and a limited number of university credits accepted in transfer.
