Life here is active, energizing, and entrepreneurial. So is our education. It's the kind of learning that gets you involved and engaged, both inside and outside the classroom internships, research, service learning and fieldwork. Our hands-on style gives you opportunities to challenge yourself and gain leadership experience in a thousand different ways.
Live-action-learning is our trademark equal parts thought and action, knowledge and skill. ODU is the only doctoral university in the nation that guarantees every student practical career-related experience within their major and for credit. With 165 different areas of study available in our six colleges, you're sure to find the career path you’re looking for.
So it's no accident that ODU graduates routinely launch successful careers directly upon graduation or are accepted to top professional schools throughout the world. Either way, ODU's vast resources will help you every step along the way.
