I am interested in Grad schools in Louisiana. Which schools might be best for an Anthropology major?

How is the cost of living for college students? Is it hard to find part-time jobs to work around a school schedule? How easy is it to get around in Louisiana? Would I need to travel far for basic needs such as groceries? What is the cost of food in Louisiana?

Maybe Tulane if you can afford it?

Cost of living is relatively cheap compared to many other areas in the US. Part time jobs are pretty easy to find as long as you have a little bit of experience. Travel to basic needs depends totally on what area you end up in.

Default Anthropology in LA

Well Jessica, none of our college campuses are too far into the boondocks, so you won't have to go far for essentials. Most are in actual cities, albeit small ones.

Try LSU-Baton Rouge it generally has good programs in everything and is reasonably priced. Also, if you have a good GPA (over 3.2) and decent GRE scores (1200+), you will probably qualify for an assistantship.

I got my MA in Poli Sci there.

Tulane is the "Harvard of the South". Check it out if you want to go to a great school in New Orleans located in the Garden district above where the majority of damage was done by Hurricane Katrina. Here is their website: http://tulane.edu.com (broken link)

It's really bad, I'm not sure if you will survive bein an outsider and all. Might get some funny looks, some mean words said 'bout ya.

You will have to first buy what is known as a pirogue (pronounced pee-row) and sell your fancy drivin machine. It's best if you live ON the bayou so you don't have to walk too far to launch your pirogue in order to get to Boudreaux's General Store, Thibodaux's Gator Munchies, or Bubba's Bait-Tackle-Burgers-Hair Care-and Mortuary.

Education? Yeah, maw teaches all the younguns while paw goes out huntin for the daily eats... which is usually nutria rat or gator. Every now and then ol' paw'll surprise ya and come back with somethin nice like a squirrel or coon that someone done run over with their fancy drivin machine up yonder on the "big road."

We just simple folks here in Louisiana, we don't take kindly to strangers. You aint gonna find no fancy "college" learnin here, just what maw can teach ya. You should probably stay over yonder in dem parts you live in and not wander over thisaway.

By the way, I'm kidding. But if you're not looking for an extremely expensive college, you could look into Louisiana Tech in Ruston. Centenary in Shreveport is a nice, small, private Liberal Arts college. Hey... I've got to represent north Louisiana when I can.

I have to contest. Tulane,LSU, and Loyola are good schools but there are lesser known schools that excel in certain fields of study. ULM is the best for pharmacy, Centenary is a great liberal arts school, ULL should be you top choice for engineering,computers,architecture, and nursing. Don't forget NSU,UNO, or Xavier. Though I don't know much about these following schools you can't forget them: Southern, Grambling,or Louisiana College.

If you're interested in the New Orleans area then Tulane and University of New Orleans both have Anthropology programs, but the cost of living here isn't cheap. As far as the rest of Louisiana I really can't help you there but the cost of living would be cheaper. If you're looking for an environment similar to GA then i would suggest the rest of LA outside of NO

Centenary has a graduate program in anthropology?
