Environmental Professional Program

Practical, State-of-the-Science Training

The Environmental Professional Program (EPP) at Portland State University offers practical, state-of-the-science training to graduate students and professionals.

Our classes are offered in a short-course format and focused on the skills and knowledge required to implement a wide-range of environmental projects including: physical processes, ecology, analytical methods, field techniques, regulations and project management.

EPP courses are developed and taught by practicing experts from government agencies, universities, consulting firms and non-governmental organizations. Courses can be taken for CEU and PDH credit.

Our Participants

Our participants come from a variety of local, regional and federal agencies; tribes; environmental consulting firms; watershed councils, and more.

Diversity Scholarship

We offer a $5,000 scholarship that can be used for tuition for the five core classes of the River Restoration Certificate. The goal of this scholarship is to increase participation from populations typically underrepresented in the field of environmental science and from geographic regions outside the Portland metro area.
