Course Description

Environmental Psychology is the study of the bi-directional interaction between people and their environments. It includes the effect of natural and built environments on people's well-being and also the impact humans are having on the environment broadly. Environmental psychologists examine people's thoughts, feelings, attitudes, motivation, resistance, and behaviour in relation to environmental factors. In particular, this course will focus on human behaviour and how to encourage pro-environmental behaviour.
