Across the arts, humanities, and social sciences, faculty in the School of Liberal Arts are engaged in cutting-edge scholarship that shapes the core questions of their disciplines and has an impact both in the classroom and in the community. Our research and creative activities awaken the soul to the human condition, challenging past assumptions and broadening our perspectives. Our location in New Orleans provides unique opportunities to investigate pressing problems such as hunger, poverty, environmental fragility, education, and economic disparity as well as to celebrate and explore our distinctive culture. Our focus on the Gulf South region and recognized expertise in Latin America underscore our distinctive bridge between the local and global, both in terms of offering solutions and in gaining insights through scientific, historical, philosophical, and artistic inquiry.
