BATON ROUGE - LSU is continuing a two-year growth trajectory in enrollments and program offerings for fully online degrees through LSU Online & Continuing Education. The most recent 45 percent growth rate is reflective of the department’s mission to deliver high-quality programs with academic rigor and dedicated student support. These programs are online by design, meaning the courses undergo a robust design and development process to maximize a student’s experience in the virtual classroom.

In keeping with this mission, LSU is pleased to announce the launch of eight new fully online programs from the Baton Rouge A&M campus. LSU Online & Continuing Education now offers more than 80 online degrees, certificates and MicroCred programs across a range of high-demand fields. By expanding online offerings, students can earn an LSU degree–learning from the same faculty teaching the on-campus courses–from anywhere in the world.

The new programs include:

"We are excited to launch our online B.S. in Sport Administration to further provide LSU students the opportunity to earn this degree in a flexible format,” said Michael Martinez, LSU School of Kinesiology assistant professor. “Students pursuing this degree will be exposed to relevant topics and trends to the management and administration of the sport industry."

Students who enroll in any of these degree programs can expect world-class customer service from a dedicated concierge starting on day one. The concierge provides one-on-one support during the application process, assistance with registering for classes and encouragement throughout a student’s academic journey. This personalized support empowers students to focus on earning their degree.

Curious about online courses? Individuals new to online learning can try out a course at no cost through our Geaux for Free courses. The free mini-courses provide a sneak preview of online education from MicroCred to degree programs. 

The deadline to apply for the fall semester is August 10.
