Honoring the history and community of Asian Desi Pacific Island Americans and celebrating their contributions to the UO, Oregon, and the world.
PhD student Diana Christie is conducting research on white-thighed colobus monkeys in Ghana that could eventually inform treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and cancer.
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.

Examine What Makes People Tick
The study of human groups, attitudes, and behavior—from the dawn of time to modern day—spans an array of disciplines. We can help you pinpoint your interests. Our psychology program is one of the best in the nation. If anthropology intrigues you, pick a concentration in archaeology or biological or cultural anthropology. We also offer degrees in communication disorders and sciences, family and human services, general social science, neuroscience, and sociology.
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.

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.
