The Appalachian Laboratory has a strong history of involvement with K-12 and public science education as well as with graduate education.  Through the ALESE program, AL faculty and staff are involved with teacher professional development, developing education and outreach products, and providing environmental science outreach to schools and other groups.  Visit our ALESE page to learn more about our K-12 and public science education programs.

Although not part of a degree-granting campus, AL also plays a leadership role in both the Marine - Estuarine - Environmental Sciences (MEES) Program at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) and the graduate programs of the Department of Biology at Frostburg State University (FSU). Both the courses offered and types of student research directed by AL faculty, reflect strengths in landscape and watershed ecology, aquatic ecology, conservation and restoration ecology, and evolutionary and behavioral ecology.

Prospective students interested in learning more about the potential graduate programs at AL may visit our Information for Prospective Students page.
