Program Overview

Conservation Psychology is an emerging interdisciplinary field that promotes a scientific approach to understanding the reciprocal relationships of human beings with one another and the more than human world with the explicit aim of enhancing environmental and biodiversity conservation.

Through coursework, this certificate introduces students and practitioners to conservation psychology approaches and tools; builds current knowledge and skills in the arenas of conservation biology or climate and environmental science research; and offers a range of opportunities to integrate conservation psychology learning through applied skills in communication, cultural competence or program evaluation.

The certificate is ideal for people whose environmental and conservation science work requires additional skills to engage effectively in communicating with the public; for environmental education and advocacy practitioners who want to enhance their program and campaign development approaches; and as an introduction to social research for those whose research programs or questions engage them with human attitudes, values, and behavior.
