We offer graduate programs leading to both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Although most of our graduate students have Food Science or Fermentation Science backgrounds, a number of our students have prior degrees in engineering, chemistry, and a variety of other areas. We attract students from around the world as well as from throughout the United States.

Oregon State University, located in the heart of western Oregon, is one of the most beautiful campuses you will find anywhere. Corvallis is a picturesque college town with just over 50,000 residents. Our students enjoy the excitement of being part of a Pac-12 university as well as a wide variety of cultural and recreational opportunities. Just over an hour's drive away, you can find yourself skiing or hiking in the Cascade mountains, enjoying the Pacific Ocean, or visiting Portland, Oregon's largest city. Corvallis is a bike-friendly community, with numerous hiking trails, wildlife preserves, and city parks. Many of our graduate students enjoy membership in the Food and Fermentation Science Club, as well as impromptu social gatherings throughout the year.
