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 500 graduate-level classes in over 800 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 100 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 538.

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.


Math institute has broad appeal, impact

Back for a second year, the 2015 Summer Math Institute for Teachers features a pair of dynamic courses designed for middle school and secondary educators that can add to the knowledgebase of a wide range of students.

MTH 590 – Topics in Secondary Mathematics: Applications of Geometric Thinking
MTH 594 – Numbers and Operations in Secondary Mathematics

These graduate-level courses are ideal for students working toward their master's degrees in education, and the institute's faculty are open to having students participate virtually.

Offered through OSU's Department of Mathematics and supported by Summer Session, the classes will meet Monday-Thursday from June 29-July 16.
