Mission & Vision
We offer the ONLY accredited undergraduate environmental health program in Michigan!
Unlike larger universities, we offer a small, active, hands-on learning experience for our students where they work directly with the faculty members in the department. Depending upon your interests, several program options are available to students who are contemplating a career in the environmental sciences.
Earn your ACS certified degree!
The American Chemical Society (ACS) has approved LSSU's Chemistry Program. You can now earn an ACS certified degree. Contact the School Chair, Dr. Werner, for more details.

Department of Geology
Lake Superior State University provides an excellent opportunity to study geology. Located on the edge of the Canadian Shield and Michigan Basin, we offer a highly innovative, project-centered curriculum that was developed with the financial support of the National Science Foundation. Our classes and field courses emphasize learning through active participation and hands-on experience. The small size of our department fosters a close, personal relationship among students and between students and faculty. Our very active Geology Club organizes regular social activities and local field trips. Students also have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty on research in geomagnetics and micropaleontology.
