• Earth, Environment, and Physics Research

    At Worcester State University, we understand that the best learning includes doing. That’s why we offer you the opportunity to hone your scientific skills and techniques by working on faculty-led undergraduate research on topics like global climate change, sustainability, and other local and global environmental issues. Collaborating with your professors will reinforce classroom and laboratory learning and expose you to best research practices. We recognize these remarkable student-faculty collaborations at our annual Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity. Recent projects include:

    • The Impact of OSHA Reporting Policy Changes on Workplace Safety
    • Lake Sediment Based Insight Into the Deglaciation and Post-Glacial Climate and Environmental History of the Mealy Mountains, Southeastern Labrador, Canada
