About the Participant

Welcome Home

Before you came here it was an abstraction: an approach to learning that stood out from all of the other colleges on your mind. You learned more about it on your first visit to the College. Pitzer students, faculty and staff embrace the idea in their studies and work every day.

It guided you while studying abroad. Your classes served as intersections as professors and students from different disciplines met to explore the limits of what they know.

Just as importantly, these academic intersections signify a unique
commitment. Just as a street sign tells you where you are and where
you are going, Pitzer’s intersections lead to endless opportunities
and few boundaries.

Pitzer’s paths to knowledge cross in interesting ways. Each intersection marks a point of discovery, collaboration and innovation.

Welcome to Interdisciplinary Studies.
