In addition to traditional degree programs, Southeastern offers alternate and add-on certification programs through non-master's and graduate programs. The College of Education also collaborates with the Tangipahoa Parish School Board to oversee the Southeastern Louisiana University Laboratory School on campus.
Southeastern's alternate certification programs are designed for individuals who hold a Bachelor's or graduate degree in another field and who seek to qualify for state teacher certification. Individuals may obtain a master's degree or complete a certification-only program. The Certification-Only program and Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) prepares teachers for Elementary (Grades 1-5), Secondary (Grades 6-12), All Level (K-12), Early Intervention (Birth to 5 years), Special Education (Grades 1-5), and Special Education (Grades 6-12) certification.
Certified teachers in Louisiana may add-on additional certifications to their teaching certificate by completing requirements found in Bulletin 746: Louisiana Standards for State Certification of School Personnel. Click here to learn more about available Add-on certifications.
SOUTHEASTERN LABORATORY SCHOOL
The Southeastern Laboratory School is very unique in the sense that we are a collaborative effort of the Tangipahoa
Parish School System and Southeastern Louisiana University College of Education. Our
