Undergraduate Study at RTC
Want to explore marine science as a field of study or a career? Upper division undergraduate students at SF State can also take marine science courses at RTC. Some faculty also accept undergraduate research assistants in their labs. Learn more about how to study marine science as an undergraduate at SF State's bayside research laboratory, and how to get here!
The Barbara and Richard Rosenberg Institute for Marine Biology & Environmental Science
The Rosenberg Institute at RTC supports the Center's efforts to communicate the science behind the world's ocean environment. View a short video on these efforts here.

The Bayside newsletter is available online
We've gone (almost) paperless! Read Bayside issues online from Fall/Winter 2015 back to 2006 to learn about our diverse environmental research in the field and in the lab, the students and scientists who do it, and see where they are now.
