Scientific and Technological Challenges.

Programs in environmental psychology are usually offered at the graduate level, and are sometimes referred to as ecopsychology, human ecology, or human factors. People who study this interdisciplinary field come from a variety of backgrounds including psychology, sociology, geography, architecture, planning, landscape architecture, and environmental policy.

Students in this area study research design, data analysis, and ethical conduct to prepare them for undertaking independent research. A solid background in math and statistics is helpful for future research data analysis.

Those interested in this career path might major in psychology as undergraduates, choosing electives in health, anthropology, architecture, landscape design, and environmental studies. Graduates who don’t wish to pursue a graduate degree can become designer’s assistants, ergonomics specialists, or outdoor educators.

Psychologists in clinical and counseling roles must be licensed by the states in which they practice. Licensure requires a combination of education, experience, and passing scores on an exam. They must participate in professional development on an ongoing basis to keep their licenses.
