The Master of Education in curriculum and instruction prepares practicing educators to serve as master or lead teachers, instructional specialists, and curriculum coordinators. Candidates may select one of four concentrations to study: early childhood education, elementary education, reading, or secondary education. The reading concentration satisfies the reading specialist endorsement by the Louisiana Department of Education, and the secondary concentration satisfies the content-specific credentialing requirements of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' Commission on Colleges.
Review the curriculum. Effective with the 2013-2014 Catalog, to begin summer 2013, new concentrations will be added in (1) academically gifted education and (2) immersion education.
