Ways of Learning:  There's no substitute for hands-on experience!

In the College of Agricultural Sciences, an internship can make experience part of your OSU education. You can gain work experience in your field of interest and make some key contacts for your future. We can help you identify and arrange appropriate internships.

Branch Experiment Stations Internship Program

The Branch Experiment Stations (BES) internship program for the College of Agricultural Sciences is a 10-week experiential learning opportunity for Oregon State University undergraduate students.  The Branch Experiment Stations are off-campus research facilities located across Oregon.  They are located in regions of Oregon where they can have the most impact in helping stakeholders (farmers, ranchers, fishermen, food processing entrepreneurs) to address the critical issues specific to that locale.

Grit and Glimmer: OSU Senior finds balance in the world's wine industry

Miriam Hawk is sitting in her workout clothes in OSU’s Department of Horticulture’s student lobby studying for winter midterms.
