We are an interdisciplinary team of scientists focused on connecting science, society and the sea from SF Bay to the Farallon Islands and beyond.
The faculty at the EOS Center are affiliated with various departments in SF State’s College of Science & Engineering and partner organizations that share our mission. We teach undergraduate and graduate level courses here at the EOS Center on the Romberg Tiburon Campus and at SF State’s Holloway (main) campus. Many of our course offerings immerse students in the ecosystems of San Francisco Estuary and nearby outer coast, and utilize our flow-through baywater system, boating, and diving programs. We mentor SF State students doing original research in our innovative Master’s of Science in Interdisciplinary Marine & Estuarine Science (IMES), based at the EOS Center, as well as master’s students affiliated with academic departments. We conduct cutting-edge research on basic and applied topics in marine and estuarine science, conservation, and restoration (see Research), and embrace a scholar-teacher model that brings current topics and methodologies to our student training. We seek to give our diverse student body the tools needed for graduate studies and careers that confront the most important issues in estuarine and ocean science and management.
