Earn an economics degree online and learn from real-world economists

Oregon State offers an economics bachelor’s degree online through OSU Ecampus, and having Ph.D. instructors like Taylor Rhodes on the faculty is one of the program’s many benefits. It means students learn from faculty who have immense firsthand knowledge of how economics course concepts are applied in the real world.

New era in politics creates a demand for political science graduates

“There are so many more jobs in politics now than there has been in recent history. When (our students) graduate, they don’t just have the critical thinking skills, they also have the applied skills to go out and get some of these jobs and bring a new perspective to understanding politics.” — Oregon State political science associate professor Christopher Stout

Oregon State Everywhere: Gaining a deep understanding after a tragic loss

“The motivation to understand how and why my thinking and behavior changed pushed me towards completing my degree with OSU Ecampus. The classes were difficult and sometimes it felt overwhelming, but I wouldn’t trade anything for this experience.” – OSU Ecampus psychology student Kristina Tucker

Online sociology degree leads alum from rural town to Fulbright scholarship and more

Sarah Brown began as an OSU Ecampus student many years ago, when instruction was often delivered by VHS videos. Technology evolved as her studies continued (thankfully). After graduating with honors in 2016, Brown earned a prestigious Fulbright scholarship for the 2017-18 academic year. And the knowledge she gained in OSU’s sociology program significantly impacted her ability to succeed while conducting independent research in Hungary.
