CC&E Student Research
The College of the Coast & Environment offers a wide variety of research opportunities to students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Whether they are creating computer models, sampling in Louisiana's coastal wetlands or conducting experiments in a lab, our students work alongside faculty doing groundbreaking research as they build the skills they need for a successful career.
There are many ways to get involved in research as an undergraduate, both through CC&E and the university. Here are some of the ways to participate in research. Congratulations to the students who are receiving funding through these entities.
LSU Discover supports student participation in faculty-mentored research. Learn more about the opportunities they provide on their website.
