As a leading research-extensive university, LSU challenges undergraduate and graduate students to achieve the highest levels of intellectual and personal development. In keeping with this vision, the School of Collaborative Academic Programs supports multi-college, multi-disciplinary and cutting edge convergent academic programming.


The mission of the School of Collaborative Academic Programs is to provide academic programming to undergraduate and graduate students, involving deep integration across disciplinary boundaries. These programs require the convergence of knowledge that utilizes the strengths of more than one school or college to address exceptionally complex problems relevant to the human condition.
