The Ray P. Authement College of Sciences at UL Lafayette brings faculty and students together who are passionate about exploration and discovery. We encourage collaboration and independent thinking so you can find ways to better understand, explain, and positively impact the world around you.
At UL Lafayette, accomplished faculty and next-generation scientists conduct groundbreaking research side-by-side. These research opportunities are designed to help you grow intellectually, academically, and socially.
We offer graduate and undergraduate degrees in biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental science, geology, informatics, mathematics, and physics with a range of concentrations and specializations.
You've heard of learning "beyond the classroom," but the beauty of our university is that we're smack-dab in the middle of some of the most interesting and diverse environments in the country. Imagine having a managed wetland in the middle of campus teeming with birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and the occasional squirrel to study. Or being just a few miles off the Gulf Coast to study its ecosystem. We offer experiences and resources that students travel from across the globe to be a part of, so join us!
