Science that goes beyond the classroom.
Being an effective leader in science requires global insights and cross-cultural communication skills.
Prepare to connect with communities across the world to solve challenges that transcend borders. Thirty percent of our students travel abroad for research and study, and our biology program leads OSU in the number of students who have global experiences.
Microbiology senior Julianna Donohoe researched Parkinson's disease as a medical research intern at the Cajal Institute - a leading research center in neuroscience in Madrid, Spain.
Immersing yourself in hands-on learning — whether you are researching with a faculty mentor, developing skills in a science internship or presenting at a national conference — prepares you to make new discoveries.
SURE Science Scholars actively engage in research over the summer, guided by faculty mentors. Molly Austin, one of 38 undergraduates who received a $5,500 scholarship, researched novel marine antibiotics in hopes of uncovering new drugs to combat resistant strains of bacteria.
If you are driven by a deep desire to study complex scientific challenges and offer solutions, learn to influence teams. Joining science clubs and leading student activities will give you the skills to work toward shared goals.
Recent BioHealth Sciences graduate Coby Cates founded a medical club that offers experiential opportunities to 50+ students. The Pre-SOMA club won the Student Osteopathic Medical Association's national Chapter of the Year award in its first year.
Learn science by investigating firsthand how the world around you works. At the College of Science, you will enhance your classroom learning by applying your knowledge to hands-on problem solving and research outside the classroom. Pursue opportunities to engage in scientific inquiry by studying wildlife in Costa Rica, interning for a U.S. government agency or learning collaboratively in one of 200 research labs on our campus.
