Marine Studies Education goes Beyond the Classroom 

Our marine studies programs immerse you in learning about issues facing the coasts and oceans, and the people and communities connected to them.

Through coursework, experiential education, and student support, you'll gain experiences to prepare you for leadership, continued education, and the workforce.


You’ll have access to some of the best faculty on the West Coast, undergraduate research opportunities, world-class facilities such as the Hatfield Marine Science Center, and an inclusive and innovative culture.

We offer a range of programs and degrees in the earth and life sciences, liberal arts, and humanities to fit your academic interests and goals. Oregon State faculty are here to help you succeed.

Dive in and join us. We look forward to meeting you!
