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.
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.
“The students and professors that I met in my four years here made me a better person, a better scholar, and a better leader. From learning about the lessons that Native philosophy can teach us today to discussing case theories in UO’s stellar Mock Trial program to meeting some of my closest friends in the student lounge, I found myself and my home in the CHC.”
“I wouldn’t be here, with a thesis successfully defended and submitted, without the guidance of my advisors. They believed in the merits of my research, which at times I couldn’t see myself. Barring personal motivation and ability, I think a good committee is the difference between a bad thesis and a good one and a good one from a great one. Go to those office hours and make those connections: you’ll be thankful for it, I’m sure.”
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.

“What I like most about the research neighborhoods (at the Knight Campus) are the interactions. Students are exposed to different types of scientific research which helps them find their own path and create their own collaborations.”
– Parisa Hosseinzadeh, Computational Biochemist and Assistant Professor, Knight Campus
