Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: 3

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

  • Applicants are required to have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  • Though not a requirement for admission to the program, applicants who have taken a range of undergraduate courses in art history are highly desirable, as are applicants with reading knowledge of French or German—a reading knowledge of Chinese or Japanese will be especially valuable for students intending to specialize in Asian art.
The following materials are required:
  • Application for admission to the LSU Graduate School, including a narrative statement of purpose.
  • Application fee.
  • One set of official transcripts for all previous college or university work.
  • Appropriate test scores (GRE and, for many international applicants, TOEFL).
