Forest Ecology and Management Certificate at Portland State University prepares you to take an active role in and contribute to the management of Oregon's forests, which cover nearly 48 percent of the state's total land mass.

Forest management requires a consideration of the ecological, social and policy context of Oregon's forests, and this certificate will provide you with the foundation you need to understand and manage forests beyond traditional industrial forestry needs.

You'll graduate ready to work for local, state and federal agencies, the forest industry, non-industrial private landowners, environmental groups, nonprofits and non-governmental organizations.


Our graduates from the Forest Ecology and Management Certificate at Portland State University go on to forest ecology and forest management jobs with both public and private organizations such as the Oregon Departments of Forestry and Natural Resources, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Peace Corps, forestry consulting firms, environmental organizations and forest timber and wood products industries.
