Topics
Ohio State University Confidence: 90% Arrow up

The Ohio State University, commonly referred to as Ohio State or OSU, is a large, primarily residential, public university in Columbus, Ohio.

Founded in 1870 as a land-grant university and ninth university in Ohio with the Morrill Act of 1862, the university was originally known as the Ohio Agricultural and Mechanical College (Mech).

The college began with a focus on training students in various agricultural and mechanical disciplines but was developed into a comprehensive university under the direction of then Governor (later, President) Rutherford B.

Hayes, and in 1878 the Ohio General Assembly passed a law changing the name to "The Ohio State University".

It has since grown into the third-largest university campus in the United States.

Along with its main campus in Columbus, Ohio State also operates a regional campus system with regional campuses in Lima, Mansfield, Marion, Newark, and Wooster.

Public university Confidence: 78% Arrow up

A public university is a university that is predominantly funded by public means through a national or subnational government, as opposed to private universities.

Whether a national university is considered public varies from one country (or region) to another, largely depending on the specific education landscape.

Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Confidence: 73% Arrow up

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, formerly called The Ohio State University Medical Center (OSUMC), is a multidisciplinary academic medical center located in Columbus, Ohio, United States, on the main campus of The Ohio State University (OSU).

In 2010, the center was ranked one of "America's Best" by U.S. News & World Report in 11 specialties.

OSU Medical Center was the only central Ohio hospital ranked as "America's Best" in 2010.

However, as of 2016, the center's health-related programs garnered the best rankings of all at the medical center, including nursing-midwifery (#28), occupational therapy (#12), physical therapy (#10), and pharmacy (#6).

In 2016, OSUMC was ranked in 7 specialties, with only one medicine-related area breaking into the Top 15 rankings (ear, nose, and throat).

Undergraduate education Confidence: 73% Arrow up

Undergraduate education is the post-secondary education previous to the postgraduate education.

It includes all the academic programs up to the level of a bachelor's degree.

For example, in the United States an entry level university student is known as an undergraduate, while students of higher degrees are known as graduates.

In some other educational systems and subjects, undergraduate education is post-secondary education up to the level of a master's degree; this is the case for some science courses in Britain and some medicine courses in Europe.

Postgraduate education Confidence: 71% Arrow up

Postgraduate education, or graduate education in North America, involves learning and studying for academic or professional degrees, academic or professional certificates, academic or professional diplomas, or other qualifications for which a first or bachelor's degree generally is required, and it is normally considered to be part of higher education.

In North America, this level is generally referred to as graduate school (or sometimes colloquially as grad school).
