Research & Internships

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Center (UROC)

About UROC

UROC pairs undergraduate students, who are interested in conducting research and ultimately applying to graduate school, with a faculty mentor closely related to the students' academic interests. They also offer workshops throughout the year open to all students (RSVP required), including Grad School 101, Poster Presentation Workshops, GRE Analytical Writing Workshops, Brown Bag Scholar Research Talks, and Summer Research Opportunities and REU Workshops.

CSU Council on Ocean Affairs, Science & Technology (COAST)


The CSU Council on Ocean Affairs, Science and Technology (COAST) was established in 2008 to integrate system-wide resources and promote interdisciplinary multi-campus collaborations to advance our knowledge of natural coastal and marine resources and the processes that affect them. The coastal zone faces a number of economic, sociological, ecological and technological challenges that require innovative solutions. COAST is uniquely positioned to provide an integrated, coordinated response to these challenges.



The goal of the CSU Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program is to increase the participation of individuals who face or have faced social, educational, or economic barriers to careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). The CSUMB LSAMP program is focused on increasing graduate school preparedness and readiness for all LSAMP participants.
