Students in our programs get practical, hands-on, career-launching experience in:


State-of-the-art laboratories with equipment for the study of biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, environmental science, marine science, and geographic information systems (GIS).

Connecticut’s abundant array of biological systems that beg to be explored and investigated — Long Island Sound, inland wetlands, lakes, streams, and forests as well as the neighboring White Mountains of New Hampshire.

The Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center at Milford Point, with which the University of New Haven has an association. This preserve is one of our field stations and encompasses a 600-acre salt marsh and a large beachfront, both located on Long Island Sound at the mouth of the Housatonic River.

The University of New Haven’s own marsh — the Banca Marsh — in Branford, Connecticut, where students study coastal marsh dynamics and eco-communities. The Gerace Tropical Research Station on San Salvador Island in the Bahamas, where students can take our tropical marine biology course — with the University of New Haven faculty.

The Sound School in New Haven, with which the University of New Haven is also associated. The school’s aquaculture facilities are available to our students for projects, courses, and internships.

The planned opening of our new Marine Sciences Center, which will be located just off I-95 on the Long Island Sound in New Haven.
