How Students Dive into Marine Science at UC Davis

Undergraduate research helps shape our understanding of the Ocean's coast and climate at Bodega Marine Laboratory. As an R1 university, UC Davis is part of a prestigious group of universities that is conducting research at the highest level. Fewer than 200 institutions in the U.S. have this classification. Over 50% of UC Davis undergraduate students conduct research and creative projects beyond the classroom, and a major new career initiative aims to have 100% participate in experiential learning, including research, before they graduate.
