Hatfield Marine Science Center  

Spend your summer studying by the sea

People who say you can't have your cake and eat it too have never heard of OSU's Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC). It's a stone's throw from the Pacific Ocean, meaning you can check off degree requirements while enjoying a summer in one of America's most scenic locales.

Courses in the summer marine and environmental studies program at HMSC provide students with extensive hands-on field study of organisms in their natural habitats. What's more, scholarships are available for on-site housing at no cost or at a reduced rate during summer term.

Apply for a scholarship by May 1, and visit the HMSC financial aid webpage for more details.
