Ever thought about studying abroad? OSU offers several international study abroad programs, including one in Antarctica. Read on:

OSU Class Heading to Antarctica; Spots Open for Public

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State University students and members of the public will have a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about the effects of climate change and human impacts on the environment in Antarctica during a special class that will take them to the remote continent for two weeks.

Participants in the field course will see how human impacts, both immediate and from afar, alter ecosystems on a global scale. By observing and studying these changes in a pristine environment, Harte said, the group will gain insight into potential environmental changes that may be in store for the Pacific Northwest, including declining snow packs, shrinking glaciers and changing vegetation patterns.

Including the Antarctic excursion above, you can learn more about OSU’s numerous other study abroad opportunities, international internships, and even how you can earn an International Degree at OSU by visiting the International Programs website. OSU has programs in Australia, Spain, Mexico, Japan, Ireland, Italy, Thailand, South Africa and Brazil, just to name a select few countries.
