LSUS is awaiting final approval for doctorate program. The Louisiana Board of Regents approved a letter of intention for the university's first doctorate program. If everything goes as planned the school will soon offer a doctorate of education.
Currently people travel to east Texas to find a school offering a similar program. 280 people are already on a waiting list to enroll. The school is hoping to attract educators from Bossier, Caddo and DeSoto Parishes.
A proposal goes before the LSU board of supervisors and board of regents Friday. The program is expected to start Fall 2013.
