THREE PATHS TO TEACHER CERTIFICATION

During the last ten years, the College of Education has been a leader in teacher education reform. Based on extensive research and practice, the college now offers three distinct ways to become certified as a teacher. Students choose from a bachelor's program, a master's program, or an alternative certification program. Regardless of the route chosen, students will find that teacher education at LSU links contemporary research and practice, focuses on preparing teachers for a culturally diverse world, provides extended experiences in a variety of educational settings, incorporates instructional technology, and prepares teachers who truly understand both children and pedagogy.

Bachelor's Program

Undergraduate students who are eager to complete their education in four years may find the bachelor's program most attractive. Students in this program earn a Bachelor of Science in Education and attain Louisiana Teacher Certification in a program that combines general education, an area of focus, professional education courses, and practical experiences in 128 credit hours. The program is designed for students who know early in their college careers that they want to become teachers and who want to enter the profession immediately following receipt of the bachelor's degree. It features early connections between university-based and field-based learning and includes a full semester of professionally supervised student teaching.


Master's Program

Students who wish to spend extended time developing the expertise to enter the profession with an enhanced capacity for leadership may choose the master's program that includes a full year of graduate-level professional preparation. Students earn a master's degree in education and Louisiana Teacher Certification by completing 37-43 credit hours beyond a bachelor's degree in elementary education or in secondary education. The program features extended experiences in diverse school settings, the support of peers who work together in small cohort groups, mentoring by graduate faculty, and the development of teacher-researcher skills.


Alternate Certification Program

Students who already hold a bachelor's degree and would like to become certified as teachers may find that the alternate certification program leading to Louisiana Teacher Certification best fits their needs. Although the program does not lead to an academic degree, it serves the needs of employed adults by building on existing degrees and experiences. Students employed as teachers may be able to take advantage of the Louisiana Tuition Exemption Program.


Teacher Education Programs in Other Colleges

Programs in agricultural education, business education, home economics education, and industrial education are offered through the School of Human Resource Education and Workforce Education in the College of Agriculture. Students prepare for nursery school-kindergarten teaching through the School of Human Ecology in the College of Agriculture. Students prepare for teaching vocal or instrumental music through the College of Music and Dramatic Arts.

ADMISSION/ADVISING

Students anticipating careers in teaching and undergraduate students pursuing a kinesiology degree should contact the Office of Student Services, College of Education, 236 Peabody Hall, to declare their interest and to obtain additional information. The variety of routes to teacher certification and specific general education requirements necessitate early and continuous advising by the college.

Students interested in graduate programs that do not include teacher certification should contact the Graduate School.

Office of Student Services

The Office of Student Services provides all student-related services for undergraduate students in the college, master's students seeking teacher certification, and alternative certification students. The office strives to provide a single, student friendly environment designed to meet all student needs: recruitment, application procedures, admissions, advising services, student records, scholarships, teacher tuition exemptions, PRAXIS information and examinations, student-related experiences (e.g. student council), degree audits, teacher certification, and alumni follow-up.

Students who participate in these programs must receive departmental evaluation of the courses to be taken. In addition, students must make an appointment with a counselor to ensure that degree credit will be granted upon return to LSU.

ENROLLMENT IN TWO DEGREE PROGRAMS

With the dean's approval, a student may be enrolled in two degree programs concurrently. A student can enroll as a dual registrant using one of the following procedures:

Dual Enrollment Within the College of Education--By completing residence and academic requirements for two degree programs, a student may earn one bachelor of science degree with two majors. By completing residence and academic requirements and earning 30 hours over the degree requiring the fewer number of hours, a student will earn two separate bachelor's degrees.

Dual Enrollment in the College of Education and a Second Academic College--By completing residence and academic requirements for two degree programs and earning 30 hours more than the degree requiring the fewer number of hours, a student can earn two bachelor's degrees. The student must be accepted for admission to both colleges and must adhere to the regulations of both colleges. In addition, the student must declare a home college where registration will be initiated and permanent files maintained. It is the student's responsibility, however, to maintain contact with the second college to ensure that satisfactory progress is being made toward that degree.


COLLEGE OF EDUCATION STUDENT COUNCIL AND HONORARY SOCIETY

The college's Student Council includes student representatives from each department and members-at-large. The college also sponsors an honorary organization, Kappa Delta Epsilon, for teacher education students.

PHI KAPPA PHI

Phi Kappa Phi, a national scholastic honor society founded in 1897, with 282 chapters nationwide, is one of the most prestigious scholastic honor societies in the U.S. The LSU chapter was founded in 1930 as the 43rd chapter in the nation. At the present time, the national office is located on this campus in the French House.

The primary objectives of Phi Kappa Phi are to promote the pursuit of excellence in higher education and to recognize outstanding achievement by students and faculty through election to membership and through various awards and fellowships. Phi Kappa Phi is unique because it recognizes superior scholarship in all academic fields, rather than restricting membership to a limited field.

Juniors in the top five percent and seniors and graduate students in the top ten percent of their classes may be invited to become members of Phi Kappa Phi. New LSU Phi Kappa Phi members are initiated and honored in the spring semester each year and wear identifying ribbons on their academic gowns at commencement exercises.


HONORS COLLEGE

Students who are interested in dual membership in the Honors College and the College of Education should contact the Honors College for admission information.

HOLMES MASTER'S PROGRAMS LEADING TO TEACHER CERTIFICATION

Elementary Grades Five-Year Program

Students may enter the elementary education basic program after completing at least 24 hours of degree credit courses with a 2.50 gpa.

Students who are in the elementary education basic program should apply for admission to the elementary teacher education junior-year cohorts on or before March 1 of the sophomore year. Late applicants cannot be guaranteed consideration.

Admission to junior-year cohorts in the elementary education program will be on a selective basis. Students will be selected from those candidates who meet the overall gpa admission requirement of 2.75 or higher and passing scores on the PRAXIS I assessments. Meeting the minimum admission requirement does not guarantee admission to the elementary education junior-year cohorts.

Students not admitted into junior-year cohorts by the time they have completed 75 hours will be dropped from the College of Education.

Students must maintain at least a 2.75 gpa each semester to continue in good standing in an elementary education cohort. Students who fall below a 2.75 gpa will be placed on probation. Students who remain on probation for two consecutive semesters will be dropped from the Holmes program.

No final grade lower than "C" will be accepted in any professional or specialized education course required for certification, regardless of a student's overall grade-point average.

Elementary Grades Graduate Year (Holmes only)

Admission to the Holmes elementary education graduate year requires:

Completion of all undergraduate course work with a gpa of at least 2.75 and all graduate courses with a gpa of at least 3.00;

Completion of all undergraduate professional education course work with no grade lower than a "C";

Admission to the LSU Graduate School.

Completion of minimum requirements, including an undergraduate degree in elementary education and admission to the LSU Graduate School, does not guarantee admission to the graduate year teacher education program. A College of Education admissions panel selects from among qualified applicants those students to be admitted into the fifth-year cohorts.

Students should apply for admission to the elementary education graduate year on or before March 15 of the senior year.

Secondary/K-12 Grades Fifth Year Program

Graduate year, subject-specific cohorts will be formed in the College of Education for graduate study in secondary or K-12 teacher education programs leading to teacher certification. Secondary teaching areas include English, mathematics, social studies, and science. K-12 teaching areas include art, foreign languages, and health and physical education.

Students interested in a fifth-year teacher education program should contact the College of Education Office of Student Services upon admission to the University. Informal advising will be shared by the College of Education and the college where the student's academic major is located.

Completed materials for application to the fifth-year, subject-specific cohorts should be received in the Office of Student Services on or before March 15 for students to be guaranteed consideration for the graduate-level course work that begins in the summer term. Students who apply after March 15 cannot be guaranteed consideration. Application procedures assume prior admission to the LSU Graduate School.

Admission decisions are contingent upon admission to the LSU Graduate School.

Applicants may include candidates with degrees, as well as seniors finishing their programs in the various academic areas. In general, applicants will be expected to have completed all but six hours of courses required for teacher certification in their subject area.

Meeting minimum requirements, including an undergraduate degree in an appropriate field and admission to the LSU Graduate School, does not guarantee admission to the fifth-year teacher education program. A College of Education admissions panel will select from among qualified applicants those students to be admitted into the subject-specific, fifth-year cohorts.

No final grade lower than "C" will be accepted in any professional or specialized education course that is required for certification, regardless of a student's overall grade-point average.

Secondary and K-12 students must complete the PRAXIS I assessments and the appropriate PRAXIS II subject area/specialty test(s) no later than the end of the fall semester of the fifth year.

The University Laboratory School, an integral part of the College of Education, is maintained for observation, research, and pre-service field experiences in grades K through 12. The Laboratory School, therefore, maintains a staff of teachers for the purpose of giving instruction to children, demonstrating teaching procedures to student teachers and observers, developing innovative programs, conducting educational research, and acquainting pre-service and in-service teachers with approved and tested teaching procedures and viewpoints.

The Laboratory School serves as a demonstration center for educational methodology. Faculty members demonstrate reflective practices through classroom research relative to the development of concepts and principles. Graduate and undergraduate students observe and participate in the use of instructional and testing materials. Graduate students and University faculty have opportunities to utilize the school for research studies. A limited number of pupils can be accommodated in the Laboratory School. The admis-sion process is designed to provide a diverse student population representative of the general population. Tuition and activity fees are charged for each pupil in grades K through 12.
