In the ever-changing field of education, educators depend on leadership to deliver the best learning experiences for their students. With our Master of Education Degree, Louisiana College is dedicated to the advancement of education across the nation with a foundation in Christ. Graduates of the MED program aspire to be the advocates for changes in education that lead to a higher degree of teaching and learning in and out of the classroom. Our professors offer their years of experience in the classroom, as administrators, and education advancement to those seeking to continue the important work they are already doing and expand their influence for the betterment of the student experience.

    • have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited university
    • have a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average on all previously completed coursework (undergraduate and graduate) 

"LC’s faculty understand that a textbook alone doesn’t prepare educators to teach or leaders to lead.  It is through faith integration and real-world experiences that they prepare their students to be highly effective as they  face reality in today’s schools."
