OSU Summer Session

Oregon State University Summer Session

Enjoy all Corvallis has to offer this summer

With sunny skies and temperatures in the 80s this week, it's clear why Corvallis is the ideal destination for summer fun. You can float the river, hike and bike the trails, head to the farmers market and enjoy outdoor concerts.

While you're at it, it's also a great chance to catch up on your classes, knock out some requirements or get ahead in school.

Register today for summer classes at Oregon State. Check out the schedule of classes to find quick links to class listings - or create your own unique search using the summer 2016 catalog searcher. Choose from more than 550 graduate courses offered on the OSU Corvallis campus.

An added perk: everyone pays in-state tuition for on-campus courses.*
*Does not apply to VetMed or PharmD courses or INTO students.

If you're leaving Corvallis this summer, Oregon State Ecampus delivers nearly 100 courses online, so you can take advantage of summer term wherever you go.

Coastal Seas  

Get your hands "wet" on the coast

Here's your chance to gain hands-on lab and field experience while earning credits toward your degree: Sign up for summer classes at OSU's Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport.

Featured course: FW 498/598 - Aquaculture Laboratory

This unique experience lets you dive hands-first into culturing salmonids, algae, oysters and live prey for rearing marine fish and crustacean larvae. We'll conduct a series of experiments learning to culture steelhead, microalgae, oyster larvae and live prey, learning about the culture system design, construction and water quality.

Our field trips will explore the applications of these culture practices to commercial-scale production, including trips to the Alsea Bay Trout Hatchery, Oregon Hatchery Research Center, Oregon Oyster Farms, Pacific Seafoods and the Whiskey Creek Oyster Farm.
