Pitt in the Himalayas is a semester-long study abroad program run by the University of Pittsburgh and the Hanifl Center for Outdoor Education.  Based in the Landour community of Mussoorie in North India, with a unique perspective on a spectacular mountain environment, students will be able to earn up to 15 credits in six different college courses that cover a range of disciplines including anthropology, religious studies, creative writing, biological science, environmental science, sociology and language study.

Twenty-five students will be selected to participate in a program that combines rigorous academic study with field expeditions focused on ecology, culture and the environment in the Himalayas.  All courses are taught by experienced faculty and are designed around a series of educational expeditions, cultural activities and field trips that include:
