The New Orleans Studies minor draws upon the rich array of subjects New Orleans offers for scholarly research and study. Loyola's faculty is uniquely situated to examine this diverse, culturally-rich city and to provide students with a deep and textured understanding of it.

Courses across the university critically analyze the city's history, society, culture, and environment. In the New Orleans Studies minor, students can explore issues of race and class relations, ecology, and politics. Courses in history, literature, drama, and film focus on the city and its people. New Orleans' ethnic heritage, its musical innovations and its celebrated foodways open additional avenues for exploring one of America's oldest cities.

Programs sponsored by the Center for the Study of New Orleans complement courses in the minor. The New Orleans Studies minor, like no other in the world, provides a unique program for understanding a unique city.
