Nestled between rivers, mountains, and a rocky coastline—we’re all about beautiful contrasts.

We’re relentlessly innovative, but grounded in a history we’re constantly learning from. We’re thinkers who create, builders who dream, adventurers, and change agents happily rooted in our own personal arboretum.

We love technology and nature, abstract art and discrete mathematics. We believe in respect and inclusion, conversation, and collaboration, and we’re always interested in diverse perspectives.

So don't you want to be a Duck?

Why UO?

Examine What Makes People Tick

The study of human groups, attitudes, and behavior—from the dawn of time to modern day—spans an array of disciplines. We can help you pinpoint your interests. Our psychology program is one of the best in the nation. If anthropology intrigues you, pick a concentration in archaeology or biological or cultural anthropology. We also offer degrees in communication disorders and sciences, family and human services, general social science, neuroscience, and sociology.

At the UO you’ll develop a strong foundation in real-world settings with outstanding faculty, whether in a field experience or internship, researching in campus labs, or as part of a student-led program.

All of these degrees offer flexibility after college, teaching you skills that relate to a wide variety of occupations or serve as excellent precursors to graduate programs.

Donny Morrison

“I took a non-traditional route to the UO, battling both homelessness and addiction during my youth. When I arrived on campus, I joined the Oregon Daily Emerald. My advice is to get involved. If not the school paper, get involved with something! As a non-traditional student, it was so important for me to always remain open to new opportunities.”

— Donny Morrison, BA ’20 (journalism)

“I am thankful to have found my belonging at the School of Journalism and Communication. I found friends who share the same interests and outlooks as me. We created together. We laughed together. We grew together. They are all so special to me and they will forever be part of my fondest memories at the SOJC.”

A Place for Curiosity

Ducks dive into research to find answers to some of humanity’s biggest questions. We’re using big data to save and improve lives, striving to predict earthquakes and prevent deadly disease. We’re combining expertise across disciplines in math, biology, and genomics with bioengineering, neuroengineering, and precision medicine to fight cancer.

We’re re-defining research education with the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact, shaping the next generation of scientists, innovators, and entrepreneurs, ready to serve the state, nation, and world with discovery and impact.
