You and CERCOM

At Molloy you can start something in science

At Molloy College's Center for Environment Research and Coastal Oceans Monitoring (CERCOM), we will empower you with the greatest opportunity to make a difference.  Did you know that Long Island is the largest island in the United States? Nearly 10 million people live, work and play on Long island, from the tip of Brooklyn to the tip of Montauk Point, and the island is one of the world's top tourist destinations for its food, recreation, people and most importantly the nature that supports all the aforementioned.

With this knowledge comes a tremendous responsibility to preserve our natural environment for the well-being of current and future generations. It all starts with you. As a student of Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental Studies,
you will have a unique opportunity to bring your personalized classroom education to the next level by conducting vital coastal research at CERCOM. From hurricane protection to urban sprawl, from transportation issues to estuarine ecosystem health, you will be at the forefront of addressing Long Island's greatest ongoing environmental issues. These environmental issues are globally important as well. So, don't hesitate... get on board.
