According to AffordableSchools.net, both LSUA’s online Criminal Justice and Business Administration programs have been rated as some of the most affordable in the country.
The ranking considered the average cost of attendance and the student-to-faculty ratio.
LSUA’s online Criminal Justice program allows students to go from zero college credits to college graduate in just over three years.
“Those who teach in our program are all practitioners meaning they have worked in the field or are currently working in some aspect of criminal justice,” said Beth Whittington, chair of the Department of Criminal Justice. “Our students have built in mentors and we get to know our students and work hard to see each through to graduation and career employment.”
The Business Administration program at LSUA continues to grow with several new offerings, both online and on campus to meet the needs of the workforce and our students. New offerings include a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in International Business.
