In alignment with SUSLA’s mission statement, the Division of Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Education (AHSSE) provides a comprehensive education in the fine arts, humanities, social sciences, and education, which lead to opportunities for teaching, service, workforce development and life-long learning. AHSSE provides an essential component to a liberal arts education by promoting analytic, interpretative, interpersonal, and communication skills that facilitate self-discovery, collaboration, civic engagement, and excellence. Nearly every student at SUSLA takes courses in the division of AHSSE; therefore, we provide instruction and experience in skills that are critical to every career and educational pathway.
The Division of Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, and Education will become the premier division in the Shreveport-Bossier region, providing the core values of excellence, integrity, accountability, service, and diversity.
The programs in AHSSE include the AAS in Criminal Justice, AS in Human Services, and the Certificate in Child Development. We also offer the general studies transfer programs in history, political science, psychology, sociology, health and physical education, and general education. Additionally, we offer the Louisiana Transfer degrees in Humanities, Fine Arts, Criminal Justice, Mass Communications, and Social Sciences.
