By Emily Wright, a site devoted to helping students explore graduate program options, recently completed its spring college rankings and LSU Shreveport ranked highly among other post-secondary institutions offering online learning.

LSU Shreveport’s Master of Education in curriculum and instruction degree was rated with an overall score of 91.62, and a ranking of 31 out of 41 schools.  “This ranking and distinction helps LSUS stand out a great deal. Students shop for programs, especially online programs. They want quality. We know we provide a quality program,” said Dr. Cay Evans, professor and director of graduate programs at LSUS. “This ranking helps get what we already know about our programs out to the masses.”

As a leader in online education, student access to technology is a top priority at LSUS. The online master of education degree program is removing the geographic, time and financial barriers that often prevent students from achieving their education goals.

“Any national recognition, especially in the area of online programs and quality, will be a selling point to students who are seeking information,” Evans said.

Today, students can earn a master of education online via a course management system that provides students with 24/7 access to course material from anywhere.

“Our students have responded to our online degrees with a resounding yes. The students in our programs already know about the quality and rigor and are excited that others are finding out about what LSUS has to offer,” Evans said.

The LSUS online education degree includes the same comprehensive core content that is taught on campus. Students who pursue their master of education online receive personalized support from enrollment to graduation via their own student coordinator.

LSU Shreveport's online degree program is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.

Candidates can pursue one of five degree options, including a M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction with concentrations in educational technology, academically gifted, reading and literacy, English as a second language, and general emphasis.

Each course is just seven weeks long and there are six start dates to choose from so students can balance school with work and family.

The GoGrad website states that searching for the right online program can be difficult for students because of certain courses needed and the programs that are offered at particular institutions. So the site ranked the colleges across the country in their online master’s in education programs and LSU Shreveport is found to be in the top picks.
