Capture the ocean

Enjoy the breathtaking views of Oregon's coastal scenery, and develop and refine your photography skills by enrolling in Photographic Field Studies (ART 399/499) at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport.

This 4-credit course is a portfolio-based, intensive class that includes Adobe Photoshop workshops and printing and mounting classes. At the end of the term, you will present your work at an exhibition open to the public.

No more writer's block

If you've ever struggled to put your thoughts onto paper, you're not alone. The Undergrad Writing Studio at OSU is a great resource to help you create your individualized writing assignment and find your rhetorical purpose every step of the way.
