**Please let us know if you are visiting Oregon State University. We would be happy to give you a personalized tour.
CEOAS has five majors – (1) Climate Science, (2) Environmental Sciences, (3) Geography and Geospatial Science, (4) Geology, (5) Ocean Science. The below “4-year sample plans” provide a good example of the types of classes our students take.
Recent graduates from CEOAS have gone on to work for the federal government, city municipalities, private, public, and non-profit companies. Our academic majors also prepare students to enter a wide variety of graduate programs. Some recent companies/organizations that students have been employed with are:
OSU offers multiple ways to reduce the cost of your education. Non-Oregon resident students (US citizens) can save more than $50,000 on their four-year tuition cost by taking advantage of the Degree Partnership Program (DPP), summer and online class opportunities. Our Oregon-resident students also love the cost-saving and convenience factors of the DPP. Please contact us to receive personalized advice on these cost-saving options.
This can be a tricky question to answer. Sometimes a class taken at a different institution will be given “equivalency” to an OSU class. For example, MAT 136-Finite Mathematics from Alabama State University has been evaluated as equivalent to OSU’s MTH 111-College Algebra. The links below can help look up exact equivalencies.
Many of your transfer classes may be given general “elective” credit status. For these classes, Academic Advisors will need to review the course content for applicability to specific academic major requirements. This can be a lengthy process, and advisors will usually need a few weeks to evaluate.
Absolutely! The majority of CEOAS students get involved in at least one of the below outside-the-classroom opportunities. One of the great things about being a CEOAS student is all of the hands-on experience you will receive throughout your education. We encourage all of our students to try and do at least the following three things during their time at OSU – (1) get at least one internship, (2) get involved in research, (3) and try to study abroad. Not only will these opportunities help ensure you have a well-rounded education experience, but they are also fun and look great on a resume!
We do accept “post-bacc” students. For admittance, we usually look for a strong statement of purpose on the application and completion of at least college algebra. Additional admittance consideration is given to other math and science coursework that helps demonstrate potential future success in our programs.
