The USC Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies brings together all of the marine and environmental sciences at the University of Southern California, and its crown jewel is a unique marine lab on Catalina Island, the Philip K. Wrigley Marine Science Center. Some of our programs are entirely focused on the mainland campus of USC, some are focused on the Catalina Island marine lab, and many use both locations.

The Wrigley Marine Science Center on Catalina Island supports research throughout the year. The labs are busy, particularly from May through September, and we recommend that you apply for research space at least five months in advance.
