Psychology

PSYC 321 Psychology for Sustainability (1)

Environmental degradation (resource overconsumption, pollution, climate change) is the most pressing problem confronting contemporary society—without a livable planet, humans, like other animals, cannot survive. Because human behavior is at the root of the problem, Psychology, the science of behavior, offers important insights for understanding and changing unsustainable individual and society systems. No background in either Psychology or Environmental Science/Studies is assumed. A service learning component is required.
