The faculty of the School of Plant, Environmental, and Soil Sciences (SPESS) are engaged in teaching, research and extension activities in the areas of agronomy, environmental management, horticulture and weed science. We offer undergraduate degree programs in plant and soil systems and environmental management and graduate degree programs in agronomy and horticulture. In the spirit of the land-grant university system, the school offers unique opportunities for students to gain valuable work experience by working with our diversified research faculty on projects that cover a broad range of plant, environmental and soils topics. Our extension faculty, with specializations in agronomy, horticulture and weed science, work with parish extension agents to deliver the latest science-based information to Louisiana citizens.
