Oregon State Everywhere: ‘I am so grateful to have taken this path’

“If it weren’t for the online program at Oregon State Ecampus, I would not have had the chance to get the Master of Public Health. I wouldn’t have complemented my work in OSU Extension Family and Community Health with classes that taught me the science behind program decisions. And I wouldn’t have met people around the world with similar passions through those classes.” — Erin Devlin, public health online master’s student
