Hey everyone! Helen Fern just completed her 18 credit PLA Portfolio at Marylhurst!
Helen is a Human Studies major, and she earned credit through the PLA program for the following courses:
- Introduction to Photography
- Mushroom Identification and Taxonomy
- Anasazi Archeology
- Conflict Management
- Effective Listening
- Psychology of Loss and Grief
Three of these topics were grounded in her hobbies and avocations (she has some great mushroom recipes and some amazing photographs!); all were deeply informed by her LIFE experience.
Helen talks about her experiences with PLA and tips for PLA students here:
