Bodega Marine Laboratory Program

See also Biological Sciences, Bodega Marine Laboratory Program.

http://bml.ucdavis.edu/

A full quarter of undergraduate course work in marine biology is available each spring quarter at the Bodega Marine Laboratory, located in Bodega Bay, California. Course offerings include lecture and laboratory instruction in the developmental biology and physiological adaptation of marine organisms, and population biology and ecology; a weekly colloquium; and an intensive individual research experience under the direction of laboratory faculty (Biological Sciences courses BIS 122, 122P, 123, 199; Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior NPB 141, 141P). This is a 15-unit program and course offerings and instructors may vary from year to year.  
The program is residential, with students housed on the laboratory grounds. Participants are assessed a room and board fee in addition to standard campus registration fees. An application is required. Obtain forms from the Bodega Marine Laboratory website listed above. Applications are due January 31 for spring quarter. Additional information on the Bodega Marine Laboratory Program is available at the Biology Academic Success Center (BASC) in 1023 Sciences Laboratory Building, or directly from Bodega Marine Laboratory, P.O. Box 247, Bodega Bay, CA 94923 707-875-2211.
