The Hatfield Marine Science Center is a distinguished marine laboratory located in Newport, Oregon.
Now in its 55th year of operation, Hatfield serves as Oregon State University’s coastal campus and as an oceanographic research base for six state and federal agencies. It is also a resource for K-12 educators and the public.
At Hatfield, we excel in student research opportunities and experiential instruction. We host a thriving summer internship program and offer an array of academic programs for students in community college through post-doc.
The Gladys Valley Marine Studies Building houses innovative classrooms and labs designed to foster collaboration between disciplines and nurture the next generation of problem solvers.
Historically, academia has been committed to producing specialists. Today, we recognize the need for exceptional multi-disciplinary generalists to address the issues of our day.
