The Ohio State University is a land-grant academic university located in Columbus, Ohio. Founded in 1870 as the first land-grant school and the eighth public university in Ohio, the school has been named for the great Morrill Act that made this possible. This is a land- grant university that is one of the largest and most distinguished in the Midwest. It enrolls thousands of students every year in its undergraduate and graduate programs. Its many programs range from the science and mathematics departments to the highly-acclaimed political science departments.
There are many different undergraduate options to choose from. An applicant may choose to enroll in an undergraduate program in liberal arts, which leads to the Bachelor of Science (BS) program, a Bachelor of Arts (BA) program, a Master of Science (MS) in a specific program, or a Doctorate program. Students in these programs can pursue either a campus-based Master's degree or an online Bachelor's degree. The campus-based degrees are usually given at the College of Business Administration or College of Education. Online students opt for the same course curriculum but attend classes through a distance-learning computer software program rather than the on-campus facility.
An undergraduate student interested in a Bachelor of Science in General Studies can pursue either a Bachelor of Arts (B.A. ), Bachelor of Science (BS), or a Master of Science (M.S.) program. For those wanting to earn their Master of Science in Business, a Concentration in Entrepreneurship may be the right choice.
The undergraduate major structure at OSU is designed to be flexible and allow students to pursue an array of educational goals. For example, those who have an interest in starting their own business can pursue a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in General Studies. Students in this program can focus on business topics such as marketing, statistics, human resources, or entrepreneurship. Those with an interest in obtaining a B.S. in Accounting, on the other hand, can also choose to pursue a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Accounting or a Master of Science (M.S.) in accounting. Business students may also opt to pursue a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Business Administration while still fulfilling part of their degree requirement by enrolling in an Accounting program.
Those pursuing graduate degrees can choose from either a Bachelor of Arts (B.A. ), Bachelor of Science (B.S. ), or Master of Science (M.S.). All four types of graduate degree programs provided at OSU offer students a variety of general education credits and elective courses in accounting, business, and psychology.
In addition to providing a variety of general education credits, graduates of an OSU undergraduate program are able to complete an advanced degree through one of its graduate programs. Students who are interested in completing an M.B.A. or M.S. . . . . . . degree can find many different graduate degree options at OSU.
