Admission to the LSTE master’s program requires:
- a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution with substantially the same undergraduate programs as the University of Arkansas at Little Rock
- a 3.25 GPA on the last 60 hours (including post baccalaureate hours or a 3.0 GPA on all undergraduate hours taken for the baccalaureate degree)
- successful application to the UALR graduate school
- academic evaluation by the LSTE program coordinator
After you have completed your online application to the Graduate School, your folder with all of your transcripts will be sent to the program coordinator for evaluation. The program coordinator will then send you a letter with your status in the process.
Once you get your letter of acceptance you will be able to start the program in any semester: Fall, Spring, or Summer. If you have any questions, please contact the program coordinator.
Almost everyone in this program holds full time jobs and the normal course load is six hours a semester during Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. Therefore, you can expect to complete about six of the twelve courses required during a single calendar year. Some people take more courses and complete the program in less than two years, but the normal completion time is two years.
The coordinator will review the applicant’s transcript before approving no more than six hours of transfer credit into the LSTE program. The courses must be from an accredited institution and no more than five years old. Should six hours transfer properly, the applicant must take the remaining 30 hours within the program for a total of 36 graduate hours.
