MA in Social Science with Emphasis in Ecopsychology & Environmental Humanities

General

Program Description

The Master of Arts degree (MA.Soc.Sc) is designed to equip students with ecological knowledge, psychological capacities, and communication skills necessary to effect change in human narratives and their resulting practices toward each other and the planet. The MA is one of the most practical and flexible graduate-level degrees due to the focus on application and a transdisciplinary approach to interrelated ecological, social, and economic problems all communities face.

Graduates of the Master of Arts program will be able to think creatively, communicate effectively, and act ethically in their response to what matters in the world and how the world must come to matter in their ecopsychology of practice. MA and DA Graduates in Ecopsychology and Environmental Humanities practice as non-licensed ecopsychology professionals, much like environmental or conservation psychology professionals, cultural ecologists, ecological sociologists, and social or cultural ecologists.
