Dr. Bruce Stephen

Instructor of Marine Biology

Dr. Bruce Stephen

Bruce Stephen Unity College

Bruce has a B.S. in biology from SUNY Cortland, a M.S. in marine biology from UMass Dartmouth, and a Ph.D. in ecology from the University of Nebraska Lincoln. He has taught biology for the last eighteen years at Southeast Community College in Lincoln, NE and currently spends summers teaching younger students at the Acadia Institute of Oceanography on MDI in Maine. That same group runs winter programs that have taken him and groups of students to Jamaica, Bermuda, and Belize during winter break. 

Before his Ph.D., he spent five years as a research associate at McLean Hospital with the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Research Program. He has published scientific articles with topics ranging from fish physiology to drug use among college students. His main area of research these days is the ecology of snails.

He is also an avid musician, playing drums with a band for many years. If you hunt, you may be able to dig up some of it, there are at least two pieces of music out there in the old fashion vinyl medium.
