Portland State University was founded as Vanport Extension Center in 1946, later moving to downtown Portland, Oregon in 1952 a few years after a catastrophic flood destroyed the nascent city of Vanport. In 1955, the Center changed its name to Portland State College to mark its maturation into a four-year degree-granting institution. Portland State College was granted university status in 1969, becoming Portland State University (PSU).
Today, PSU is comprised of seven constituent colleges and schools, offering undergraduate degrees in over a hundred and twenty diverse fields. The seven schools and colleges at PSU are the School of Business Administration, College of Education, School of Social Work, College of Urban and Public Affairs, College of the Arts, Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Some of the most popular undergraduate programs at PSU include Psychology, Computer Science, Biology, Accounting, and Marketing. PSU also offers an International and Global Studies program, as well as a Public Health program, both of which offer several concentrations for specialization.
