Penn State’s scientific research programs are strong testaments to the institution’s continued dedication to discovering breakthroughs and bringing innovation. Among its outstanding projects are the microbiome research, which focuses on discovering the role of microscopic organisms in agriculture, medicine, and others. Penn State also continues to establish partnerships with other organizations to further enhance its capabilities, infrastructures, and funding to accommodate more research projects.
Before Penn State became a university that offers a diverse course lineup, it was first a land-grant institution dedicated to agricultural research founded in 1855. It is one of three institutions in the US that received Land Grant, Sea Grant, Sun Grant, and Space Grant status. Penn State was originally named Farmers' High School of Pennsylvania and was commissioned to teach agricultural science and the practical application of scientific principles to farming.
It was not until the early 1900s when Penn State began expanding its curriculum outside the field of agriculture, which eventually led to campus expansion. During the Great Depression, Penn State made the effort to establish undergraduate branches to accommodate students in various locations. These branches built the foundation for the 24 Penn State campuses that are now spread across the state of Pennsylvania.
True to its mission, Penn State continues to make efforts to deliver education to anyone, anytime with its online education program. Students can earn their degrees through Penn State’s online portal, which offers more than 150 degrees from associate to PhD, as well as certificates to choose from. Penn State has continued to make relevant strides in convenience, flexibility, and quality in delivering accredited degrees and certificates online.
