Faculty Led Programs

Our destinations offer students the opportunity to study special topics for academic credit with College of Agricultural Sciences faculty. These programs are both led and conceived by our faculty, and may incorporate study with international students and instructors. They are often shorter than the length of a term and may take place during Spring Break, Winter Break, or the first or last few weeks of Summer Term. Feel free to browse the array of short-term programs below; we hope to see you in one of our Destinations soon!

CAS faculty-led programs are open to OSU students of all majors and on all campuses including E-campus, Cascades, La Grande, dually enrolled students at partner Community Colleges, and our main campus in Corvallis.

For faculty-led programs available through other colleges in the University, please visit the OSU GO Faculty Led Offerings pagePlease note that some programs through other colleges may have prerequisites for participation and/or may be restricted to certain majors or class standings.
