The Graduate School at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette offers rigorous scholarship in a distinctive setting.

Our stature as a research university is evidenced by the prestigious Carnegie Foundation's designation as a "Research University with High Research Activity."  Our faculty are chosen for their expertise as educators and penchant for research.  That's a powerful combination for students who are looking for enthusiastic, invigorating mentors in their fields of study.

The University is the second largest university in the state, with over 16,500 students, and the largest in the eight-member University of Louisiana System.  Approximately 10% of our student body are graduate students.

We are located in the heart of Acadiana, a region known for the extrordinary food, music, hospitality, and joie de vivre that are hallmarks of its distinctive Cajun and Creole cultures.
