Information for Prospective Graduate Students
The choice of a graduate program, major advisor, and research topic are among the most important decisions to be made in the course of an academic career. Graduate students should develop an independent line of inquiry within the scope of their major advisor's research experience and resources. The graduate programs in Biology at UL Lafayette provide students with opportunities to pursue advanced studies in many areas of biology that are united by a general emphasis in environmental and evolutionary biology.
