The LSU School of Art offers Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts programs with concentrations in digital art, graphic design, and studio art, and a Master of Arts in Art History. Tracks in studio art include the areas of ceramics, painting & drawing, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.
