OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY


More than just what happened and why:  From the History and Philosophy of Science to Applied Ethics and Religion, our courses connect across the OSU campus providing a broad perspective and a unique insight into the issues facing our world.  Our students and faculty research on and collaborate with a wide array of disciplines from Oceanography to Nuclear Engineering - from Music to Environmental Science.  Our school provides students with a series of lenses though which they can examine the universe and their place in it.
