LSU Alexandria Arts, English, & Humanities Department

LSU Alexandria  Arts, English, & Humanities Department The Department of Arts, English, and Humanities (AEH) has an energetic and varied faculty that nurtures majors in its degree programs.

The Department of Arts, English, and Humanities (AEH) has an energetic and varied faculty that nurtures nearly one hundred fifty majors in its degree programs. AEH also offers students in every major many of the general education requirements necessary for graduation. We give students the opportunity to study with dedicated teachers, most of whom publish in their fields. Because of our highly approachable teachers, and generally small class sizes, students in our courses enjoy learning environments that encourage them to think critically and express themselves effectively. Our students benefit from personal attention, while having the advantage of resources available to students on the Baton Rouge campus: a fine library, excellent computer facilities, and research and publishing opportunities.

Good News from #LSUA  #NoTuitionIncrease

Good News from #LSUA #NoTuitionIncrease

For the first time in over 10 years, LSUA’s tuition will not increase for the upcoming academic year (2017-2018). Tuition will remain at the same level as Fall 2016, which stands at $2,447 for a full-time student. There will be a $24 increase in fees (0.7%) bringing the total cost (tuition/fees) for a student enrolled in 12 hours to $3,357.75 per semester – The lowest tuition/fees of all four-year universities within the state.

Add to this the quality of education received, and LSUA is hands-down the best value in Louisiana for a baccalaureate degree. Considering that LSUA ranks among the top 10 schools nationwide of least amount of debt incurred upon graduation (U.S. News), there is simply no comparison to our educational value.

LSUA residents will also be happy to learn that the cost of living on campus will not increase. Costs to live on campus range from $1,655 to $3,945 based on the type of room selected and these amounts will remain the same as they were during the fall 2016 semester. There will be new meal-plan options for both residents and commuters with pricing ranging from $225 to $1,675.

As LSUA continues growth and advancement in its 100% online program offerings, a new course fee of up to $50 per 7-week course will be assessed starting with the FALL2 online-only semester. The revenue generated from this fee will go directly toward online tutoring, academic assistants, faculty training, course development, and proctoring for student exams. Tuition in the 100% online programs has been slightly lower than tuition/fees for on-campus programs. This new fee will bring the total cost of an online program more in line with LSUA’s traditional face-to-face degrees.

When asked about these topics for the upcoming fall, Mr. Deron Thaxton, Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administrative Services, was happy to see minimal changes. “Over the course of the last 10 years, LSUA has increased its tuition and fees by hundreds of dollars each year. Even though we’re still very low in terms of total cost, we understand the financial burden those increases have placed on many of our students. We were happy to announce earlier this week that TOPS has been fully funded and our legislators and governor have also worked to ensure that higher education was funded at the same level as last year. Those things combined allowed LSUA to keep our costs down going in to this academic year. With total cost for a full-time student only increasing by $24 for traditional programs, our goal is to allow students to focus on their educational priorities and worry less about costs.”

LSUA remains dedicated to providing a low-cost, high-quality education and collegiate experience.

The final lecture in the Cavanaugh Lecture series for 2016-17 season is going to be a the Alexandria Museum of Art on April 4, 2017 at 6:00pm.

Nationally renowned Poet, Teacher, Artist Sha'Condria iCon Sibley stands for and represents for those who are oftentimes marginalized and whose voices are silenced in today's society. As a founding member of Team SNO (Slam New Orleans), she has helped the team win multiple regional and national titles, solidifying them as a "dynasty" in the world of slam poetry.

She can be found all over the country performing on numerous stages and teaching workshops from colleges and universities to corner cyphers and living rooms. Focused on not falling for anything, iCon stands for something, and that something is much bigger than the woman or the poem.
