Program: Program in the Environment (PITE)

The College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LS&A) now offers the Program in the Environment which is an interdisciplinary curriculum with a combination of natural science, social science and humanities. Students gain a broad understanding of the complexity of environmental programs as well as specific science-based skills with which to solve them. During the first two years, students complete coursework in the liberal arts and sciences and are introduced to natural resource areas such as ecology, policy and economics, management, planning and design, and human behavior. Students are prepared for careers as research scientists, policy makers, landscape architects, lawyers, educators and resource managers. The School of Natural Resources which previously offered an undergraduate degree now only offers graduate programs.
