Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory


The Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory exists primarily for the training of undergraduate and graduate students in marine, field, and experimental sciences in a Christian setting.

Academic Program

During the summer academic session (mid-June through mid-August) upper-division and graduate students can choose from a variety of marine and other biological sciences courses, or can conduct faculty-sponsored or independent research projects. Undergraduates can get a full academic year's worth of General Biology in just one summer.  See links at the left for information about the Summer Program.

Facilities Rental

Cabins, cafeteria, and meeting rooms at Rosario are available for rent by individuals and non-profit organizations (such as educational groups, government agencies, religious groups) from September 1 until the first week of June.
