LSU Shreveport offers thirteen graduate degrees to students who hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university. Graduate study is much more than a continuation of undergraduate work. It provides students the opportunity to become investigators in special fields of learning, to broaden their professional and cultural background, and to improve their professional skills and competence. The true spirit of graduate study is one of inquiry and the desire to add to one's knowledge.
