Undergraduate Studies

Students taking samples by the ocean

At Hopkins, undergrads get to participate in hands-on, world-class research activities while collaborating with grad students, post docs, and faculty. 

Graduate Studies

Hopkins Marine Station is part of the Doerr School of Sustainability, and is home to Biology and Oceans graduate students working toward their PhDs. Students train under the supervision of faculty from both departments.


Rainbow over Monterey Bay

We acknowledge that Hopkins Marine Station sits on the ancestral land of the Ohlone Rumsen tribe and give thanks for the opportunity to live, work and learn on their traditional homeland. We pay our respects to all Ohlone people, past and present.
