Health, Science, and the Earth Pathway

Schedule appointments:

503-725-3822

 

Drop-in advising schedule

In the Health, Science, and the Earth Pathway, students work towards academic and career goals in natural and earth sciences, clinical health occupations, and public health. Whether studying plant and animal life, molecules and chemical phenomena, or the Earth's environment (including water, climate, and natural hazards) and other planetary bodies, students will think critically about human interaction with the world around us.

Students interested in health will learn about approaches and strategies that increase health opportunities for all people. Students are prepared to be problem-solvers who can address illness and disease, facilitate wise use of our planet’s resources, and develop sustainable ecosystems, human societies, and economies.
