Combining ecological and psychological principles

Hand Holding Red Earth,

A student of ecopsychology strives to integrate ecological principles and psychological wisdom into a unified field of study.

Depending on the student's specific interest, emphasis may fall on coursework in either psychology or environmental studies. In either case, students must acquire a substantial grounding in each of these disciplines, a foundation that is crucial to understanding how humans act as psychological beings within ecological systems.
