Welcome!

The College of Forestry at Oregon State University is one of the world's premier education, research, and outreach institutions that focuses on broad areas related to forest resources.

We have been educating students for over 100 years, offering a breadth of undergraduate and graduate programs that prepare students for a variety of careers in the public and private sectors. Our programs are ranked among the very best in the world. Our world-class facilities, combined with remarkable access to local forests and wood products industries, makes us the educational program of choice for the best students.
