Pros: Its an interesting subject and I enjoy studying here. The professors for my department are well known in the industry and have been around for several years.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2016

LSU and the Mathemathematica graduate program is great to acquire great knowledge in math with great professors. They are available in their office to explain to students. If you do not have a car in Baton Rouge you can pretty much do nothing.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

The professors in the history department at Louisiana State University are the cream of the crop from the top universities in the nation, and they prepare their graduate students for all aspects of their future careers. A con with the graduate program is that there are always a few students each year who are unable to receive assistantships, which can create a lot of student loan debt.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program are the one on one teacher to student ratio, class size, many opportunities to serve the local community through various community projects, family-oriented environment amongst students, faculty, and staff, and learning and professional opportunities. The cons of my program are no online classes for students being that our program is small.
