Treicia Molina - Environmental Sciences - graduate. Play

Oregon State University Ecampus gave Treicia Molina the flexibility and rigor to earn a degree online while living and working in Portland. Now she plans to use her degree in environmental sciences to work in the field of ocean sciences in Hawaii.

Today, scientists must be trained to assess problems and provide potential solutions from scientific perspectives when faced with environmental issues, as well as to predict environmental change and participate in responsible management of the environment.
