Teaching & Advising

Although the Coastal Oregon Marine Experiment Station is primarily a research facility, many of our faculty do also teach courses for their home OSU departments or for the Marine Studies Initiative. Courses take place in Newport, Astoria, or Corvallis, or statewide via E-Campus.  Some of our faculty also use Zoom or other videoconferencing technology so that students can attend and participate from multiple locations.
