The Department of Education at Louisiana State University – Shreveport (LSUS) offers two Master of Education degrees: Master of Educational Leadership (MEDL) and Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction (MEDCI).

Both the MEDL and MEDCI degrees are offered in a 100% online format, providing flexibility for busy professionals who want to advance their education, earning power, and influence. The programs are very affordable and can be completed in as little as twelve months.

The LSUS MEDL and MEDCI programs are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, serving students from across the United States and around the world. The programs were recently rated by College Values Online (CVO) as…

  • #1 Best Value Education Administration Master's Degree in Louisiana
  • #1 Best Value Educational Administration Schools in Louisiana
  • #3 College Values Online Masters Degree in Louisiana

What are Classes Like?

Students enrolled in LSUS MEDCI and MEDL programs engage in learning across a wide range of relevant subject areas designed to prepare them optimally for future service as school leaders. The programs are delivered in accelerated seven-week terms – two in the spring, two in the summer, and two in the fall. The curricula provide students with the preparation needed to be the best Servant Leaders on the planet.

What are the MEDCI and MEDL Faculty Like?

The MEDCI and MEDL faculty members are a blend of respected academics and experienced practitioners. Full-time and adjunct faculty are situated across the nation, teaching both from extensive knowledge and from service in the field. Students will also learn with and from the other students in the program.

Our students consist of those who work in public schools, charter schools, private schools, home schools, correctional schools, institutions of higher education, and U.S. Department of Defense schools. Another element of the diversity of the co-learners is that the students serve schools across a wide range of descriptors: urban, suburban, rural, and online. This broad diversity of co-learners provides for a rich experience as our students prepare for roles of greater responsibility.

What’s on the Horizon for MEDCI and MEDL Graduates?

Many markets in the U.S. now are paying salaries that range from $100,000 for campus-based leaders to north of $300,000 for superintendents. As well, the profession is currently experiencing a high number of retirements in the current workforce. Never has there been a better opportunity to move into roles as Servant Leaders at both the campus- and district-level.

Come join us as we commit to creating the best possible futures for children around the world. That outcome will only be realized under the guidance of well-prepared and highly dedicated Servant Leaders. At LSUS, we’re doing something about that!
