Environmental Science/Studies & BS-PSM Programs
Are you considering going to college for a degree in environmental science? Stockton University is an amazing choice! Nestled in 1600 acres of protected Pine Barrens and only 15 minutes away from protected shoreline habitat, there is no better place for hands-on environmental science education. Plus, we offer an accelerated master's degree!
In the previously recorded event, Aaron Stoler provides an overview of the Environmental Sciences program. He talks about the experience, the curriculum, and the jobs that would be available to you! He also takes a live tour of the nature around Stockton.
Geology is an interdisciplinary science that utilizes chemistry, physics, and biology to investigate the present and past Earth as well as ensure that modern society can function in congruence with our planet. This includes everything from studying earthquakes, volcanoes, natural resources, fossils, sedimentary processes, ground stability, climate change, surface and groundwater, environmental pollution and more. Stockton’s Geology program will prepare you to pursue careers in a wide variety of options that can be found all over the world.
Our geology professor discusses the versatility of careers a geology degree can offer. With a degree in Geology, you can explore careers in environmental consulting, geotechnical engineering, engineering geology, mineral exploration, oil and natural gas exploration, geophysics, hydrogeology, paleontology, volcanology, marine geology, planetary geology, academic research, and education.
Marine Science Program
Have a passion for the ocean? Interested in a degree in marine science but not sure if that's marine biology or oceanography?
From the classrooms at the Stockton University Marine Field Station (MFS) to the boats on the Mullica River. This information session will provide you with a glimpse into your future as a marine science student at Stockton.
Mathematics is the only universal language spoken around the globe! Math plays a central role in science, technology, finance, communications and numerous other industries.

Marine Field Station
The Marine Field Station is a facility of the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at Stockton University and a member laboratory of the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS). The Marine Field Station is used as a teaching and research destination for numerous NAMS' academic programs, including foremost the marine science program, as well as biology, environmental studies, geology, and the professional science masters program.
The Marine Field Station is on an eight-acre waterfront site in the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve and only 15 minutes from the Galloway campus and 30 minutes from the Atlantic City campus. The MFS makes available the facilities, research vessels, sampling equipment, and staff to provide Stockton students with hands-on learning experiences in a marine environment second to none.
The Marine Field Station is also home to the University’s Coastal Research Center, a grant and contract-funded research organization focusing on many of New Jersey’s coastal zone issues. Both the Marine Field Station and the Coastal Research Center provide research and work opportunities for students.
