Oregon State University Ecampus is widely considered one of America's best providers of online education, ranked among the top ten in the nation! OSU students can conveniently take our Ecampus offerings to fulfill their program requirements while receiving the same high-quality learning experience from our award-winning faculty. These asynchronous classes help meet the needs of students with busy schedules, and several are even available to students from other institutions. Available courses include biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, bioinformatics, neuroscience and more for undergraduate and graduate-level study.
Study all year round
We offer all of our diverse, fully-online Ecampus courses during the academic year, and some are also offered in summer sessions. Many of our courses are also available to students from other institutions, and all of them are taught by our award-winning biochemistry and biophysics faculty.
Students located outside of Corvallis, OR, can take Ecampus courses offered by the biochemistry and biophysics department to fulfill the course requirements still needed for their career plans. They have gone on to attend medical school, dental school, pharmacy programs, veterinary medicine programs, and more.
Faculty in our department have worked to create comprehensive textbooks that are free and available for our students and the public, including introductory biochemistry textbooks, bioinformatics and a guide to get into medical school. Former BB faculty Kevin Ahern and Indira Rajagopal were instrumental in creating two free textbooks, online courses and numerous other resources to make biochemistry fun, engaging and accessible to all.
