We are poised as never before to advance our mission and offer an excellent education, not only to the region and citizens of Louisiana, but also well beyond the state̠s geographic boundaries. Whether coming to us after graduation from a traditional high school, or returning to finish a degree that was started years ago using one of our many online programs, I am sure you will find not only a quality academic environment, but one in which you will be treated as family. Maybe you are an international student eager to learn in an American university, or a community college student seeking a transfer to a four-year university whatever the reason for your visit, we welcome you and invite you to make ULM your home away from home! We all know that in order to fully embrace our future, we must also never forget to celebrate our past, and what an amazing past we have had at ULM. Even as our beautiful 238-acre campus continues to grow along the banks of Bayou DeSiard, our campus community continues traditions that began decades ago to promote our academic, social, and cultural lives together. With an annual student enrollment of 8,500, you will find friendly staff ready to serve you and exceptional faculty willing to provide individualized attention, while also offering an array of challenging opportunities. ULM prides itself in the rigor of its academic programs.Some of our academic highlights include a new degree offering from ULM̠s College of Pharmacy. The Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences will provide a competitive advantage to students who choose to work in pharmaceutical sales, government regulatory affairs, and more. ULM's Department of Toxicology has developed a new certification program focused on occupational health, which is a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Occupational Health, Safety, and Toxicology.
