Containing the Spread

 

 
 

 

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?

Improving the Quality of Life

Whether you want to be a researcher or health care provider, an artist or inventor, the University of Oregon offers a variety of degree options if you envision a career in health or fitness.

Maybe you’re interested in the building blocks of biochemistry, biology, and neuroscience. Or, if the function of movement is more your style, consider the science of human physiology or the creativity of dance. If you want to create things that make life better, our product design program may be for you.

Whatever route you choose, you’ll be immersed in research and collaborative, multidisciplinary study and experimentation that will equip you for whatever comes next.

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)

Noah Brunson

“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.
