University Studies

Finding Your Story at Portland State


University Studies provides students with integrated, connected learning experiences that lay the foundation for lifelong intellectual development. Extending through all four years, the program teaches you how to think critically, communicate effectively, and gain a broad awareness of the human experience to instill a deep sense of responsibility to yourself, your peers and your community.

Your stress-free path to a degree

At Portland State, we’re taking some of the stress out of going to college and getting your degree. Over the coming year we will be making improvements in four key areas to improve your experience here:

Advising: More one-one-time with an advisor who knows your strengths and academic plan.

Support network: Working behind the scenes, whether it’s in financial aid, registration or other areas of campus, we’re cutting the red tape.

One-stop web site: We’re developing an improved web site for your phone and laptop that will help you organize your classes, your finances and your time.

Degree maps: You can chart your academic course, from first class to graduation, and know just what classes to take to finish on time.
