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.
“I still remember presenting [at the Undergraduate Research Symposium] my first time and feeling so excited to share my research. It changed my career trajectory from pre-med to researcher and I'm excited to be pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience in the next year or two.”
“The programs here allow me to intersect my various interests and passions relating to environmental activism and scholarship and have provided me invaluable perspectives on crucial issues that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.”
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.”
