PSY 215 Sustainability and Psychology

This course will explore the contributions that psychology has made and can make to creating a sustainable world. Whereas technology and policy can address problems of sustainability, our focus will be primarily upon human causes and consequences of environmental problems, and individual and community solutions. We will examine the primary areas of psychology, including cognitive, social, developmental, and personality for their applications to sustainability. Assignments allow students to explore their own attitudes and values regarding sustainability and to enact behavior change experiments to experience and reflect upon factors involved in behavior change.
