Seven educational programs, infinite possibilities
The College of Forestry offers seven distinct undergraduate programs which lead to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. Each program allows you to focus on a particular area of forestry, natural resources management, and renewable materials. We also offer five minors to supplement your current major.
The BS degree in Forestry, Forest Engineering, and Forest Engineering-Civil Engineering are accredited by the Society of American Foresters (SAF). In addition, the BS degree in Forest Engineering and the BS double degree in Forest Engineering-Civil Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
The BS degree in Renewable Materials is accredited by the Society of Wood Science and Technology (SWST).

An important note: in addition to the requirements for admission to OSU*, students interested in our undergraduate programs will be best prepared by taking a well-balanced college preparatory curriculum in high school. Additional courses in math, communications, biology and chemistry will provide a stronger background to your degree program.
