Welcome to Program In The Environment (PitE)
PitE’s curriculum focuses on the complex interactions of human beings and their environment. To understand these interactions and learn how to create more sustainable and socially equitable forms of human habitation on this planet, PitE students develop a multidisciplinary perspective integrating the methods and approaches of the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. By means of PitE’s many field classes and internships, PitE students put their scientific, policy, and cultural scholarship into practice.
We invite you to discover more about Program in the Environment and how we go beyond the baseline goal of producing environmentally literate citizens by offering a multidisciplinary education in environmental issues and first-hand experience putting knowledge into practice.
