Ecuador is one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world. Our partner organization is located on a 1300-acre preserve along the Napo River in the Amazon Rainforest. The program is designed for students interested in Biology, Ecology, Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, and Culture. In the June Session, you will explore Health and Nutrition of the Quichua People, Ecuador’s progressive healthcare system, and indigenous medicine. In July, you will build a solid foundation in tropical forest ecology.

Come learn about the different sessions of this unique program. Students don't need to have studied Spanish to participate in Pitt in Ecuador as all courses are taught in English. It is the perfect location and program to explore new ways of preserving biodiversity in the Amazonian forest and the sustainability of Amazonian communities.
