BIS 316: Topics in Psychology - Topic: Psychology & Sustainability

  • SLN: 14185 Monday & Wednesday 11:15am-1:45pm in UW1-010 @UWB; Full Term course.
  • Course Description
  • The primary cause of environmental problems is human behavior. Sustainability, therefore, can be achieved through changes in how people interact with and toward the environment and each other. This course will use psychological theory and research to understand the role of human behavior in sustainability efforts, but will also include an interdisciplinary approach in which we evaluate the role of the culture, institutions, natural resource management, ethics, and power as they relate to “environmental problems.” Students in this course will learn not only to apply psychology’s major theoretical perspectives to an interdisciplinary understanding of environmentally-linked behavior, but also to evaluate and initiate changes we can make as individuals and as a society to move toward sustainable ways of living and being.
  • In this course “sustainability” is approached holistically, meaning that every aspect of the human experience–-cultural, emotional, biophysical, ecological, economic, and geographical—is considered to be inextricably linked and simultaneously of equal importance. Any effort to create a sustainable society must begin by understanding the thinking and emotions that are motivating behaviors at the individual level and how these behaviors affect and are shaped by culture and society.
