Undergraduate and gradute students have been studying marine science at the EOS Center since it was first established in 1978. With its close proximity to salt marshes, rocky intertidal areas, sandy beaches and open water, the EOS Center is a perfect setting for active field study. State of the art research facilities are available for student research, as well as a fleet of research vessels that are suitable for research activities in the Bay.
Fall 2021 course schedule for undergraduate and graduate students.
The NSF Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) is a Summer independent research experience for undergrads in laboratories at SFSU and at the Estuary & Ocean Science Center. Over the Summer they will participate in weekly professional development meetings in which they will learn strategies for successfully pursuing a career in science. Learn more about the REU program and how to apply.
Food+Shelter+Success is SF State's Basic Needs Initiative. Basic needs are the essentials that every student needs to survive and thrive. Food+Shelter+Success supports students and their ability to be engaged learners who reach their full potential by helping students access quality food, secure housing and economic resources.
