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.
Please contact Dr. Donna Fiebelkorn at the School of Education, (906) 635-2728 for graduate program advising.
"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful."
