The theme of “Sustainability and the Environment,” alternately known as “Life of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS)” is a Thematic Study Abroad (TSA) program held at Portland State University from September to June. The LOHAS TSA offers international students interested in the general theme of environmental sustainability the opportunity to take classes and participate in community service through Portland State University’s nationally renowned Sustainability curriculum. Environmental Sustainability undergraduate studies at Portland State University fall under the following departments/schools: University Studies, Environmental Sciences and Resources, and the School of Urban Studies and Planning.  Students take an Academic English course that directly supports the program curriculum.
