OSU Summer Session

April 5, 2016

Oregon State University Summer Session

On your mark. Get set. Go register (on Sunday).

Registration for Oregon State summer classes begins April 10 and classes fill up quickly - so it's time to set your summer plans and see where OSU classes fit in.

Choose from more than 550 graduate courses offered on the OSU Corvallis campus. Check out the schedule of classes where you'll find quick links to class listings - or create your own unique search using the summer 2016 catalog searcher.

An added perk: everyone pays in-state tuition for on-campus courses.*

How to sustain natural resources

Register now to enhance your leadership skills, gain knowledge and connect with other natural resources professionals from around the world at this year's Natural Resources Leadership Academy (NRLA) held June 12-17 and June 20-24.

Featured track: Resilient & Robust Resource Management
How do we sustain natural resources given a dynamic climate and an uncertain future? This new track will look at climate adaptation from an interdisciplinary perspective using a set of global examples and cases.

"What I hope participants come out of this class with is a very positive attitude toward climate change," says NRLA Instructor John Matthews. "This is something that is a hard problem, it's an important problem, it's an ongoing problem, but it's also a tractable problem. It's something they can successfully integrate into their work and develop useful and sustainable solutions for."


Analyzing invasion at the coast

Spend this summer taking in the ocean breeze while studying at OSU's Hatfield Marine Science Center. Gain hands-on lab and field experience while earning OSU credits in an ideal learning environment.

Featured course: FW 521 - Aquatic Biological Invasions
Remember the dock that washed ashore in Newport after the 2011 tsunami in Japan? This class examines major topics and events in invasion ecology such as the tsunami debris from Japan. Strap on your boots and dig in to this hands-on course that examines the background, theory, evolution, ecology, politics and conservations of invasions by introduced species in aquatic environments.

Check out the HMSC financial aid webpage for details on how you can live at the HMSC at no cost or a reduced rate this summer. Deadline to apply is May 1.


Conduct research, learn about energy poverty in Guatemala

Learn about energy poverty and work alongside OSU faculty conducting research abroad in Guatemala this summer. Find options for improving health, livelihoods, the environment and quality of life of Guatemalans through the use of renewable energy technology, such as biomass cookstoves.

Visit rural communities and homes to measure energy consumption, talk with residents about their needs, evaluate technological solutions and learn about international development by visiting the U.S. Embassy and USAID in Guatemala City. The deadline to apply is April 15.
