Louisiana Career Clusters and Programs of Study

The state's Career and Technical Education Programs of study are approved by the Louisiana Board of Regents and organized under sixteen different career clusters. Each year Louisiana’s colleges and universities review their approved programs of study to provide the most up-to-date list of programs on an annual basis. 

For the purposes of Career and Technical Education program funding, the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) has divided the state into regions or zones according to geographic locations. Delgado’s region (Zone E) is in partnership with Jefferson Parish Public Schools, Nunez Community College, Orleans Parish Public Schools, Plaquemines Parish Public Schools, St. Bernard Parish Public Schools, and St. Charles Parish Public Schools. More information is available in the LCTCS Multi-Year Perkins Funding State Plan.

Each region (or zone) is responsible for targeting Perkins funds to three (3) agreed upon career clusters. Delgado’s region has agreed upon Health Science, Information Technology, and Skilled Crafts cluster areas. Delgado also has previous funding year carry-over programs in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Math cluster area.
