Oregon State University's College of Science is a college within Oregon State University consisting of 13 departments. OSU's College of Science also offers 11 preprofessional programs for students who are preparing for a medical school or another health-related school.[1] The college was founded in 1932 as the School of Science, when the OSU paleontologist Earl L. Packard became the first Dean, as a result of the dramatic reorganization of the Oregon State System of Higher Education in the same year.[2] The School of Science was renamed to the College of Science in 1974.[3]
