The Program in the Environment (PitE) is a university-wide collaborative undergraduate program overseen by the University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS) and the U-M College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. Students take courses in the natural and social sciences and in the humanities. Core requirements are supplemented by specialization and capstone courses that draw from a variety of academic perspectives.
PitE’s curriculum focuses on the complex interactions of human beings and their environment. To understand these interactions and learn how to create more rational and 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.
