What is LaMSTI?

The Louisiana Math and Science Teacher Institute sponsors a special track of the Masters of Natural Science degree, an offering of the LSU College of Sciences. Designed for practicing middle and high-school math or science teachers, this track includes graduate coursework designed to increase teachers' knowledge and command of their subject matter and curriculum (factors that have been proven to increase student achievement), as well as preparation for service as lead teachers, mentors, and coaches.

Twenty-four students are accepted into the LaMSTI program each year. Classes are held Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm for six weeks each summer for three years. Students that are accepted into the program receive free tuition and generous stipend support for the duration of the program (approx. $1,000 per week of class). LaMSTI is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
