WINTER AND SPRING TERMS

  

Introductory Week- and Weekend-long Experiential Marine Science Courses at HMSC

Spend a week or weekend studying Oregon's coastal environment while learning about the interdisciplinary nature of marine science. These introductory courses have an experiential field and lab emphasis designed for first- and second-year undergraduates, non-science, and potential science majors.  Introduction to Marine Life in the Sea courses are an overnight weekend stay. They combine lectures, wet labs, and hands-on field experiences to study several topics related to the marine environment on the Oregon coast.

SPRING TERM – MARINE BIOLOGY AND ECOLOGY

  

Imagine a 15-credit course where you eat, breath and sleep marine biology for ten weeks, Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm, sometimes earlier and sometimes later and sometimes on the weekend and LOVING IT! Each spring, marine biology students take up residence at the center for Oregon State University's 15-credit course in marine biology, dividing their time between lectures in the classroom, field study along the coast, and laboratories in one of our wet labs. Students learn to observe, identify, and collect seaweed and invertebrates, trawl for fish aboard the R/V Elakha, and muck through the mudflats and estuaries. Follow our students in the class journal blog.
