MSc Environmental Psychology

Environmental psychology explores the transactions between people – both individuals and groups – and their physical setting; it gives a prominent place to environmental perceptions, attitudes, evaluations and representations and accompanying behaviour.

Environmental psychology focuses on both the effects of environmental conditions on behaviour and how the individual perceives and acts on the environment. As psychologists our focus is on people’s perceptions, attitudes and actions, but as environmental psychologists we believe that these psychological processes are always situated, that is, they are invariably place-related and place-dependent.

The MSc in Environmental Psychology addresses these issues through specialist courses which draw on the latest research, inter-disciplinary perspectives, and cutting edge theories and methods from psychology.
