College of Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts in Action!

Welcome to the LSUA College of Liberal Arts! Here, we showcase our liberal arts skills in action—our students read, write, think, collaborate, communicate, create, and perform! Student majors in Art, Communication, English, Humanities, and Religious Studies are developing the skills that empower them to think broadly and make bold career choices. 

LSUA is distinguished as a Council of Public Liberal Arts (COPLAC) undergraduate university. Our faculty is committed to the transformative experience of a liberal arts education. Vibrant LAS courses, student organizations, and career-development opportunities prepare our graduates for great careers and purposeful lives.
