Ecopsychology and Environmental Humanities
Have an Impact On The World
Viridis Graduate Institute programs are designed for working professionals with practical experience in their field, for those seeking to change from their current vocation, and for those seeking a new career direction that utilizes ecopsychology and environmental humanities. Students in ecopsychology want their lives to make a real difference in their communities – to be of genuine consequence in the world. Our students want to contribute to the quality of life for all life. They want to contribute to a flourishing world in meaningful and practical ways.
Viridis Graduate Institute prepares a student to become an ecopsychological leader by developing the psychological competence, ecological knowledge, and emotional responsiveness required to creatively solve problems challenging our ecological and social structures. Students apply ecological knowledge and psychological skill in assessing and understanding narratives underpinning human behavior and perpetuating destructive practices.
An ecopsychological education develops cultural leaders capable of transformative actions necessary to address the difficult challenges that confront an individual, group, organization, business, or a community.
