Course Long Title

Environmental Psychology


This course explores research methods in the psychological and emotional response to the complex environment of modern Western society. The course proceeds from a perspective of the biological basis of psychological states such as stress and well-being and related environmental stimuli to that of neuroendocrine activity. Many aspects of our contemporary environment can act as stressors and can, thus, lead to a wide spectrum of unhealthy stress-induced behaviors and conditions. This course examines the epidemiological, laboratory, and neuroendocrine evidence of environmentally-induced psychological stress as well as metrics of well-being. Prerequisite(s): PSYC 101.
