Great program that offers many areas of research. Baton Rouge is a city of very helpful and supportive people. All the teachers are brilliant mathematicians and equally exceptional teachers. Would recommend the program to anyone seeking a satisfying and enriching mathematics program.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program provides a great opportunity to learn and experience real world situations. This is a pro and a con. The time commitment required for internships makes having a job virtually impossible.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2012

Overall my graduate experience at Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge (LSU-BR), in the Dept of Geography and Anthropology, was enjoyable and instructive. I finished with a master's, and while the Anthropology half of the dept does not offer a PhD, the option to obtain a PhD is available through the department as a whole. However, few (almost none) are accepted to the PhD program in either Anthropology or Geography without a master's degree in hand. The success of a PhD in Anthropology at LSU-BR depends a great deal on the major adviser chosen, so prospective applicants should interview faculty thoroughly. The combination of geography and anthropology in this program are complementary schools of thought and offer a unique experience at LSU-BR. The social setting of the University, as well as the social aspect of the department, offers quite a diverse cultural experience, which is definitely a desirable quality for any Anthropology graduate program.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The Masters of Architecture program at Louisiana State University consists of a healthy competitive environment, a very caring and knowledgeable faculty educated from prestigious schools across the nation and abroad, and a wholesome curriculum which covers a variety of subjects, tools, and technology related to the field of architecture. The course loads are often challenging, but the program is set within a university where school spirit is highly valued and the entire community is involved. Baton Rouge, while it may have some issues with areas of high crime, is a very diverse city with tons to do!

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

This is a great program with knowledgable professors and staff. The class sizes are small and promote a 'family' feel. Students are encouraged to ask questions and become involved in the department. The workload is quite strenuous and may pose a challenge for those that aren't ready for it. A wide array of research labs and clinical experiences are available however, pediatrics are a main focus of this program.
