Dean's Welcome


Dear Prospective Graduate Student:

Thank you for visiting this page and reading this message. Pursuing a graduate degree is a big decision. Louisiana Tech University has a lot to offer prospective graduate students.

We offer 29 Master’s degrees (with multiple concentrations) and 10 doctoral programs. Graduate certificate programs are ideal for those who wish to earn documented credentials in a particular area by completing 12 to 15 graduate credit hours.  Some of our certificate programs and degree programs are offered entirely online. The Life Long Learning program allows you to expand your advanced knowledge in a discipline without pursuing a specific degree.

Our graduate curricula are administered by five academic colleges (Business, Applied and Natural Sciences, Liberal Arts, Education, and Engineering and Science). A complete list of our offerings at the graduate level can be found at here, along with contact information for the graduate studies offices of each college.

I encourage you to spend some time exploring what Louisiana Tech University has to offer. Please contact the Graduate School at gschool@latech.edu if you have questions of a general nature, and please contact the college which offers a particular certificate or degree program if you have specific questions about that program.

We look forward to seeing you on our campus.

Best regards,

B. Ramu Ramachandran
Dean of Graduate School
Associate Vice President for Research
