School Spotlight: Centenary College of Louisiana
Shreveport, LA

In the northwest corner of Louisiana you’ll find a small, liberal arts college that’s as serious about career preparation as it is about responsible citizenship. Thanks to innovative programs like the Trek and May Module, students at Centenary are guaranteed to grow intellectually, professionally, and socially. Centenary’s 2,000 students must complete Trek requirements in order to graduate. Career or graduate school preparation can be fulfilled through an internship; intercultural engagement could be satisfied through study abroad; while civic involvement might take place during a service-learning course. Each May, hands-on courses revolving around culture and community are available, both domestically and abroad. A sample of offerings: study Australia: Journey Down Under; France: Americans in Paris; and Latinx Culture in Ark-La-Tex. Although Centenary is affiliated with the United Methodist Church, students come from a variety of religious and nonreligious backgrounds. In addition to traditional majors in the liberal arts and sciences, Centenary also offers degrees in business administration, communication, and vocal music education.
