University of New Orleans - Master's Degree
- Average Tuition USD 36,033
State Senator Theodore M. Hickey of New Orleans in 1956 authored the act which established the University of New Orleans. At the time New Orleans was the largest metropolitan area in the United States without a public university though it had several private universities, such as Tulane, Loyola, and Dillard. The institution was originally named Louisiana State University in New Orleans or LSUNO but renamed in 1973. The UNO University Ballroom was named in Hickey's honor late in 2014, more than two decades after his death.

1994-1998, Bachelor's degree
UNO was a very challenging education, and I appreciated that. I had attended LSU as well, but it was at UNO that I really felt I got the most out of academically. It was a commuter school, but we found ways to make it all our own. I loved having every bit of the New Orleans culture (including flash floods with water to your knees on campus) embedded into my education. I have pride in receiving my degree from such a worthy institution.
I received a BSEE degree from UNO in 1978 and launched into the explosive semiconductor chip business starting with Texas Instruments (1978 - 1987) and then to the West Coast with Cypress Semiconductor (1978-2013). I was well prepared with the fundamental EE skills and was then able to ride the semiconductor chip business tsunami wave for 3 1/2 decades very successfully. UNO was a foundational pillar for my eventual success. My education @ UNO was relaxed and intimate (the engineering school was not that big at the time). One on one time with high quality professors and a good peer group to interact with made my UNO days a highlight of my life. I also enjoyed playing in the UNO Jazz Band which enabled my sideline business of being a Jazz Musician (Saxophone) playing in may many venues in New Orleans and funding my college education. If I had to do it all over again - I would choose the UNO experience again in a heartbeat.
2006-2012, Bachelor of Art
I recently graduated from UNO in 2012 with a BA in English. I now work in journalism (a testament to what you can do with a degree from there). The learning curve took a bit of adjusting for me coming out of high school but after a while I learned how things go. The classes can be demanding but it's worth it. Social life is a bit lacking sometimes but you will always find interesting piece who share the same interests and passions as you. Very affordable to compared to other schools. Recommended.
