Animal and Rangeland Sciences
Bioenergy Minor Minor

The bioenergy minor is open to ALL majors. It’s an excellent complement to agricultural sciences, engineering, forestry, environmental sciences, business, education and social science majors. This interdisciplinary minor focuses on bioenergy concepts and issues, and offers students significant research experience and professional development.

Bioresource Research Major

Bioresource research students acquire research experience and broadly based knowledge in interdisciplinary fields of agricultural, environmental, food, health, and forest sciences. Many become industrial or academic research professionals in science, while others will enter graduate and professional schools in the life sciences or become secondary school science teachers.

Botany Major

The field of plant biology, which encompasses botany and plant pathology, involves the study of plants at levels of organization ranging from the molecular to the global ecosystem. Plant scientists in the 21st Century will be called upon to provide information useful for producing food, fiber, and medicine for an increasing population, and for increasing our understanding of the diversity of plant and ecological systems and their interactions with humans. Students studying botany and plant pathology at OSU receive the basic science background necessary for such contributions, and may choose to focus in a particular area within plant science.

Botany and Plant Pathology
Comparative International Agriculture Minor

The minor provides students with formal instruction in international agricultural concepts and practical experiences through global awareness course work, language immersion via study/research abroad, and/or international fieldwork.
