Oregon State University Honors College

Congratulations to the Oregon State University Honors College Class of 2021! Every year, I am amazed at the accomplishments of Honors College graduates, and the 200 members of this year’s class have demonstrated truly remarkable dedication, commitment and passion. As you can see in our gallery of graduates, the class of 2021 represents an outstanding addition to our alumni community. All of us here in the HC are privileged to have been a part of their journey, and we can’t wait to see what comes next.

Small classes, big ideas.


At the Honors College, just about everything is up for discussion. With average class sizes of 12 to 20 students, your ideas and input are not only encouraged, they're expected. The HC develops new curricula each year to remain fresh and relevant to contemporary issues. Courses feel less like "classes" and more like stimulating conversations among peers. 

Choose your own adventure. 


So many interests, so little time. At the Honors College, you're free to pick classes you enjoy, regardless of whether or not they're specific to your major. Are you a left-brained engineering major wanting to stretch the philosophical right side? Or an artist inspired by chemical compounds? Take courses that challenge, inspire, and encourage you to approach issues in a new way. 

Live and learn. 


The Honors College curriculum offers you the unique opportunity to learn by doing. From immersive classes to once-in-a-lifetime experiences, you'll build skills that you'll actually use when going on to graduate school or working in a professional environment. Invaluable internships, research opportunities, and international service learning experiences prepare you to be a compassionate, contributing citizen of the world.
