Eco-Health Concentration

The Eco-Health Concentration provides students with an opportunity to expand their understanding of the psychological, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual needs of human beings through the lenses of systems theory and interpersonal psychology. The unique focus of this concentration is on eco-health, ecopsychology, environmental illness, and the creative arts as a source of healing, strength, insight, and hope.
