College of ScienceThe primary purpose of the College of Science is to offer quality undergraduate and graduate science curricula. Course offerings in the sciences are designed to satisfy the requirements of offered science curricula; of science and mathematics requirements of the core curriculum, and of specific requirements of other curricula and programs.
College of Science faculty are encouraged to concentrate on teaching and to pursue research and scholarly activity as a means of keeping themselves, the curricula, and course content up to date. Participation in community service activities such as science fairs, career days, and public lectures are among the activities that enhance community learning in the sciences. Research in areas related to the regional environment, local industries, as well as basic science also provide enrichment for the sciences, the University, and Southwest Louisiana. The College of Science faculty conduct applied research in chemistry, biology, agriculture, and natural resource conservation as well as web programming and design support.
