This course explores critical issues in environmental psychology. Starting with foundational theories on place attachment and place identity, students will learn about the interrelationships between ourselves and the environment. Students will develop the ability to analyze environment-and-behavior issues, think more critically about the world around you, and understand the ways that we wield influence on the environment. Some topics the course will address include the history of environmental psychology, theories of environment and human behavior, environmental stress, natural environments, built environments, and changes in behavior as a result of global environmental shifts and sustainability.
