In addition, students attend for LSSU's degrees in English and creative writing, forensic sciences, recreation management, and legal studies.Lake Superior State University offers primarily bachelor's and associate degrees, but also grants a master of arts in curriculum and instruction and many certificates.

  • Great School. College Classes. Activities. Great Education. 4 years of Life Training.
  • Great university. Very small. Good student to faculty ratio. They have all of the student help that larger universities offer (tutors, health center, class study groups, counseling center, etc). Went all four of my years here.
  • I love the school! My husband went there!
  • Supports my old charter school
