Hopkins Marine Station is Stanford's academic outpost on the shore of Monterey Bay, the place to come if you want to learn about marine biology. Open to all majors at all levels, our courses cover topics ranging from molecular biology to ecology and conservation. Many include labs and field trips, and all take advantage of the Station's location, here at the edge of the ocean.
