We have a wide and varied degree program that includes one graduate level offering for a Master's in Teaching. The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is the first graduate degree to be offered by Louisiana College in its distinguished 103 year history. Upon receiving inital approval from the Southern Association Commission on Colleges, Louisiana College implemented the new MAT program summer of 2008. This program is designed for individuals who hold baccalaureate degrees in traditional disciplines in the arts, humanities, and sciences and desire to achieve advanced preparation and/or professional teacher certification.

Master of Social Work 

The MSW program is a 60 hour graduate program that includes field experiences.  This MSW Program is unique to Louisiana and the region because the curriculum has a 15-hour healthcare/behavioral health component and is based on a Christian worldview.  Helping students understand how the values of social work and the values of the Christian faith closely align is a key component in their education and application of skills in the marketplace. The Master of Social Work degree at Louisiana College is far more about people than a process or a product. The very nature of the social work profession is service oriented, which reflects LC’s practice of integrating faith and learning.
