Message from Dean Roy Haggerty
Welcome to the College of Science, a strong academic community intent on building a better world through scientific discovery. Recognized nationally as a center for excellence in research and teaching, our college is home to some of the world’s leading research in marine, environmental, biomedical and materials sciences.
As a scientist, I am always thinking about the state of science globally, nationally and in Oregon. Science is the single greatest force for good in human history. That is why we do the work we do – seeking knowledge that explains how the universe works and applying our insights to original solutions that improve lives and protect our planet.
If you are driven by a deep curiosity and desire to pursue science, our college offers future scientists, like you, the optimal environment to pursue curiosity-driven research and prepare to make lasting contributions for a healthy planet. You will learn from faculty who pride themselves on innovative teaching methods and doing groundbreaking research that leads to solutions for some of our world's greatest concerns. You will engage in interactive learning opportunities in the classroom and deepen your understanding through experiential learning outside the classroom—by studying overseas, building knowledge in one of 200 research labs on campus or doing an internship at a national lab.
Whether you are motivated to push the boundaries of cancer research, develop new ways to protect marine health, or make a difference in others’ lives in a health profession, our public-minded college will provide the education and support to help you launch your journey.
Start here with a degree in science and go anywhere. Science is better at Oregon State University.
Dean, College of Science
