Psychology and the Environment

Students will focus on the relationship of our behavior and experiences with the natural and man-made environments. The course will be divided into three major sections. Section I will be introductory and will examine what environmental psychology is and how it studies its questions of interest. Section II will examine the natural environment and topics like noise, temperature, and natural disasters. Section III will examine the man-made environment and topics like crowding, cities, work and leisure, and personal space. (Counts as a course for the Environmental Studies Program)
