"Explores psychology of the human relationship with nature.

This class was instructed by Peter Kahn, my research proprietor, and Capstone faculty advisor. This class was based on readings by ecopsychologists around the world, and discussions about outdoor education, zoo ethics, and ecopsychological research methods. My final paper was this essay.
