Welcome to the Department of Earth Science at Southern Connecticut State University.   Our program has a more than 50-year tradition of producing first-rate geoscientists with expertise in geology, meteorology, oceanography, astronomy, and environmental earth science.  Today, our alumni can be found working at all levels of private sector industry, government agencies, non-profit organizations, and academia. Our programs are student centered and grounded in hands-on field and laboratory based learning.  Our faculty and staff are highly engaged in teaching and research with undergraduate students.  We are housed in Southern’s New Academic Science and Laboratory Building, which provides a magnificent environment that is conducive to both  effective teaching and cutting-edge research.  Many elements of the new building, including specialized laboratories, an indoor rock wall, and an outdoor rock garden have been purpose built for earth science instruction.  If you are interested in a meaningful career that has a positive impact on the planet and the people around you, I hope that you will consider becoming part of the SCSU Earth Science tradition.
