Welcome to the new online home of the LSU College of Humanities & Social Sciences! If you haven’t already, we hope that you will take some time to explore the rest of our site and learn more about the many great things going on around our college.
As you’ve most likely noticed, we are no longer the College of Arts & Sciences. Our new name "Humanities & Social Sciences (H&SS)" is a response to decades of restructuring at LSU that eventually rendered “Arts & Sciences” no longer representative of the academic offerings in our college. Although an adjustment, our H&SS label better describes the departments and programs located in our college, and we are confident that it will serve us well as we move into the future.
We are still the same college that we have always been. Our mission—preparing students to be successful in both their personal and professional lives by helping them to better understand themselves and the city, state, country, and world in which they live—has not changed. And as such, our relationship with you, our alumni and supporters, has also not changed. You are an integral part of our success, both past and present, and we hope that we can count on you to help propel the college to even greater heights in the future.
We are proud of the diverse accomplishments of our alumni, and we hope to develop lasting relationships with our students both before and after graduation. There is nothing we love more that sharing in the successes of our friends and alumni, so please do not hesitate to contact us if there is anything we can do to be of service to you. And as always, please make sure to stop by and visit next time you are near campus…we would love to meet you!
Thank you again for your dedication to H&SS and its tradition of excellence. We are proud to count you among our supporters.
