The beating heart of a great university is found within the liberal arts. Our faculty introduce the core critical thinking and vital communication skills that set LSU graduates apart from their peers. Our expertise spans everything from health care mapping to Louisiana’s rich French heritage, and from military science to Shakespeare. Here, researchers discover long-lost human ancestors, work to strengthen the resilience of our coastline, and create therapies to improve lives. Our graduates move seamlessly from employees to leaders in every industry.
