PhD in Curriculum & Instruction: Special Education

Thank you for your interest in LSU graduate special education programs. Special educators who have interests in developing professional expertise and/or working in higher education are the ideal professionals to pursue the doctoral degree. Graduate hours that are earned during master's or specialist degrees and related to remedial or special education may be applied toward the 90-hour program. The doctoral degree focus on contributing unique knowledge to the professional literature through scholarship makes the degree different from all other graduate degree pursuits that would have preceded it. For that reason it is recommended that interested parties meet with one or more special education faculty prior to initiating the doctoral degree program.
