Prospective Students

PitE’s curriculum and program requirements provide PitE majors with basic competencies in the methods and content of relevant natural science, social science and humanities disciplines as well as opportunities for greater depth of preparation in particular areas of interest to each student.

The Minor in the Environment provides an opportunity to add an environmental dimension for undergraduates in more traditional disciplinary majors. The Sustainability minor was added in 2012 to provide undergraduates a course of study that enables them to integrate and apply their skills to complex sustainability problems. Launched in 2014, the Food and the Environment minor gives undergraduates the tools to analyze the current food system across a range of disciplines.
