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 8 regions according to Regional Labor Market Areas (RMLAs).
