Study at the Coast this Fall

  

This fall, an expanded array of courses is available to undergraduate and graduate students at Hatfield. Studying on the coast provides an opportunity for students to gain valuable field experience in a small class environment. They also have an opportunity to live on the Hatfield campus in the heart of the Oregon coast. For students who need to commute, a daily Coast-to-Valley Shuttle is available.

New and Signature Courses in Fall Line Up
  • New - Surfing (PAC 247)
  • New statistics courses for graduate students (FW 599, OC 599)
  • New Oceanographic Data Analysis (OC 301). This course provides a strong base for interdisciplinary collaborations and advanced scientific training.
  • Graduate series in Marine Mammal conservation, including biology, physiology, behavior and human interactions courses.
  • Signature field course in Coastal Ecology and Resource Management (FW 426/526). This 5-credit course consists of a 4-day intensive field lab and lecture series, followed by weekly seminars, discussions, and field trips for the term. Students learn basic biological, chemical, and physical processes of coastal habitats and issues associated with human use of coastal resources.

Note: In addition to the courses listed in the table below, there are other degree-specific courses that utilize the facilities at Hatfield. For example, CEOAS offers core undergraduate and graduate courses for majors during the fall term extension.
