Most students must have paid work to support themselves. Field research is something that must be done, not just studied. Having a research position can provide needed financial support as well as significant experiences to augment academic studies. The Environmental Psychology program is affiliated with a number of dynamic research centers where students and faculty collaborate on a wide range of projects.
The Center for Human Environments is home to several research groups, including the Housing Environments Research Group, the Children’s Environments Research Group, The Public Science Project, and the Public Space Research Group. Within these research centers, faculty initiate projects and encourage and provide assistance for students to develop research projects based on their own interests.
Related projects that open possibilities for action and experience are Nature, Ecology & Society and ActKnowledge (including opportunities for consulting and evaluation). Students from Environmental Psychology are also active in other Graduate Center research groups, including the Center for Place, Culture, and Politics and Left Forum.
