Psychology Course Offerings
In spite of some School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) Online courses having the same course number (PSYC 101, 275, 279, 304, 306, 338, 353, 356, 362) as our courses they are not the same and thus do not count towards the Psychology major or minor in the College of Arts & Sciences. There are no exceptions to this rule.
Human behavior is at the root of environmental degradation.

Outcomes: Students will be able to identify the psychological bases of environmental problems. Students will be introduced to theories and practical strategies to change behavior as it relates to environmental issues.
