Message from the Dean


Welcome to the LSU College of Humanities & Social Sciences!  We are proud to be the dynamic center of Louisiana State University where our talented and dedicated faculty develop the critical thinking and communication skills that provide an advantage in any career.

Our diverse range of courses and majors enables students to gain a profound understanding and appreciation of other societies which is critical to success in today’s increasingly global workplace.  We know that such an education prepares our students not only for a variety of jobs, but also to become good citizens and to live richer lives.

Students graduating in one of our eleven departments or numerous interdisciplinary programs go on to successful careers in law, creative arts, film, criminal justice, marketing, design, education and entrepreneurial endeavors of every kind, just to name a few.  

The LSU College of Humanities & Social Sciences is a place where students can find their passion and study what they love while also preparing for further education or challenging careers.  Our graduates benefit from the education and experiences that only a top-tier flagship institution can provide.  The research and creative activities of our faculty contribute not only to the vibrant market place of ideas on our campus, but their accomplishments garner national and international recognition every year. 

Please be sure to check out the videos posted on our website to hear the personal experiences of LSU College of Humanities & Social Sciences alumni, faculty and students.  

I am extremely proud to represent this prestigious college and to continue to provide the unique tradition of excellence, diversity and achievement that has existed since 1907.  I hope that you will join the faculty, students and staff of the College of Humanities & Social Sciences as we continue that tradition.
