    Oregon State University (OSU) is pleased to announce the availability of two online urban forestry courses during Winter Quarter 2014 (January 6 – March 21, 2014).  FES/HORT 350 Urban Forestry is an introductory undergraduate course the covers a wide range of urban forestry concepts and topics, and is suitable for anyone wanting a comprehensive understanding of the urban forestry discipline.  FES/HORT 455/555 Urban Forest Planning Policy and Management is an upper level undergraduate/graduate course that offers a detailed look at the complex challenges faced by urban forestry professionals.  Participants enrolling in FES/HORT 455/555 should have urban forestry work experience, or have completed the FES/HORT 350 class as a prerequisite. Both courses are available as part of online degrees, or as stand-alone courses available for professional development.  


    OSU will also offer FES/HORT 447/547 Arboriculture as an online course during Spring Quarter 2014 (March 31 – June 13, 2014). This course is suitable preparation for individuals interested in taking the ISA Certified Arborist Exam.

It’s the fourth straight year Ecampus has been ranked in the top 25 by at least one independent company, and the SuperScholar ranking is based on “degree selection diversity … market credibility and prestige, academic quality, student support and student satisfaction.”
