Environmental Studies (BA)
The complexities of human interaction with nature demand a truly interdisciplinary approach. Our students gain this comprehensive background through coursework, internships, field camps, undergraduate research, and study abroad opportunities. The Department of Geology and Planetary Science's Environmental Studies (ES) Program has produced both Udall and Truman scholarship winners, and our alumni now work in both corporate and nonprofit sectors. Out program has developed strong ties with Pitt's University Honors College as well as the Graduate School of Public Health and the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, plus a number of professional certificate programs. The Environmental Studies Program is funded in part through the generous support of the Heinz Endowments.
