Oregon State University Summer Session

The season you've waited for all year

The best part of spring is when it ends and gives way to summer, and there's no better time to be on the Oregon State campus than summertime.

OSU Summer Session offers nearly 700 undergraduate-level classes in more than 100 subjects, and courses last anywhere from one week to 11 weeks. An added perk: everyone pays in-state tuition in summer.

If you're leaving Corvallis until fall, don't forget that Oregon State Ecampus delivers nearly 350 courses online, so you can study wherever you go.

Dig into the past at a summer field school

Completing degree requirements is great. Completing them while studying outdoors? That's even better.

Take part in some of OSU's most unique, hands-on learning experiences this summer in an archaeology field school offered by the Department of Anthropology.

The Fort Hoskins Historic Archaeology Field School runs June 29-Aug. 7 in Kings Valley, just west of Corvallis. The deadline to apply is June 10.

And the Coopers Ferry Archaeology Field School will be held June 22-Aug. 14 in Coopers Ferry, Idaho. The deadline to apply is June 15.

To participate in either field school, students must also register for ANTH 438.

They're heeeeere! New shirts are circulating campus

The 2015 Summer Session T-shirts have arrived. We distributed the first batch at Moms and Family Weekend, much to the delight of Beaver Nation. The shirts are the creation of graphic design student Mary Hare (pictured here), and they are awesome. We'll give away shirts at upcoming events, so stay tuned for opportunities to grab one of your own.


HDFS courses shed light on the human experience

Still looking for a class or two this summer? Here are two human development and family sciences options for you to consider, both of which scrutinize highly interesting subject matter.

HDFS 240 – Human Sexuality: Explore and extend your factual knowledge about all aspects of sexuality in this bacc core course. (July 20-Aug. 14)
HDFS 444 – Family Violence and Neglect: This thought-provoking class is open to all students and won't be offered again until winter term. (June 22-July 17)
