Environmental Psychology at The Graduate Center

Are you motivated by doing research with (and not on) neighborhoods on issues like stop and frisk? Have you ever wondered about how Citi Bikes  change the experience of urban living or why they are located only in lower/mid Manhattan and nearby gentrifying parts of Brooklyn? The Graduate Center’s Environmental Psychology community embraces the “messy, fleshy” world of everyday life by taking our research out of the lab and into real-world settings.

Interdisciplinary Study of the Human Environment:

  • Provides a dynamic view of human-environment relations that considers how we shape and are shaped by our surrounding environment, from the intimate to the global
  • Takes a multidimensional, holistic stance on the environment that includes built, natural, and social settings
  • Advocates for the integration of many perspectives in interdisciplinary social scientific study to speak within and across disciplines
  • Values and enables public understanding of and engagement with environmental, virtual, social, and urban issues
  • Emphasizes challenging and changing conditions to support social, spatial, and environmental justice
  • Conducts research that uses participation to better understand the environment by incorporating concepts such as freedom of choice and how its absence can affect privacy, territoriality, and crowding
