Welcome to the Office of Graduate Education Programs
The Burton College of Education with the Dore' School of Graduate Studies offers several programs for initial teacher certification and for advanced study in education through the Department of Education Professions. These programs are coordinated through the Office of Graduate Education Programs.
Through relevant and rigorous curricula and field experiences, each program prepares candidates for professional roles in P-12 education. Each program's scope is pragmatic and specialized, blending theoretical content with practical application in curriculum, instruction, teaching, technology, counseling, and leadership in regular and special education settings.
Our programs are designed to assist our candidates in meeting the educational needs of 21st Century learners. Our professors perform research, write grants, and work with area school districts to stay up-to-date on current issues and practices in order to mentor candidates to positively influence the P-12 settings in which they currently are or will soon become a part. Our goal is to continue to graduate candidates who are proud and effective teachers and leaders in the school systems of Louisiana.
Each master’s program and graduate certificate has specific requirements that are used to determine a candidate’s eligibility for admission into a program. The following link provides a concise guide of GEP programs and admission requirements for your convenience:
