Providing Penn State students with an immersive experience in urban sustainability

City Semester Pittsburgh is a unique learning experience for Penn State students of all majors and backgrounds who would like spend a semester learning about Pittsburgh’s urban dynamics. While participating in the program, students will intern with a prominent community partner and take an engaging course in sustainability. Students will further explore real-world issues in climate action, architectural design, clean energy, landscape architecture, urban equality, education, and more.

If you are considering Pittsburgh as an option after graduation, City Semester Pittsburgh offers valuable work experience and can help you build a professional network within the inner circles of those reshaping Pittsburgh’s future today.
