Program overview

What Portland Community College says about their program:
"Are you interested in environmental issues and sustainability? Environmental studies is a “problem solving” discipline, addressing such topics as climate change, endangered species, environmental justice, pollution, and ecosystem services. Environmental Studies is an interdisciplinary field, incorporating social sciences, mathematics, chemistry, biology, and geology to understand the interactions between humans and the natural world.
Coursework for majors gives students real, hands-on experience with environmental field work and analysis using local resources such as the Rock Creek Environmental Studies Center (RCESC). The RCESC includes 110 acres of habitat, including upland Douglas-fir forest, ash-forested wetland, Oregon white oak woodland, emergent wetlands, a pond, and access to Rock Creek. These courses introduce students to local environmental professionals, introduce environmental law and policy, and provide opportunities to monitor and restore local ecosystems."
