About the College of Forestry

Oregon State University's College of Forestry has been educating professionals for a century. We've earned a reputation as a world-class center of teaching and learning about forests and related resources. We offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in three departments, Forest Engineering, Resources and Management, Forest Ecosystems and Society, and Wood Science and Engineering. We also jointly offer several interdisciplinary programs. We operate about 14,000 acres of College Forests, most of it within minutes of campus.
