Can I enroll in ecopsychology courses if I am not taking the certificate program?
All students in good standing in the Counseling Psychology department and who have met pre- or co-requisites are eligible to take certificate courses. Students must take the Foundations of Ecopsychology course before any other ecopsychology courses. If students have not met the pre- or co-requisites for this course, they can petition for permission to take the course from the certificate coordinator; students will need to demonstrate that they have the appropriate professional knowledge to take the class.
Many ecopsychology courses are offered through the Center for Community Engagement and are open to any community members who meet the course prerequisite requirements. Practicing counselors, educators, and others are free to enroll in all of the certificate courses in sequence, but will not be issued the certificate credential unless they have applied for and been granted admission to the program. The credential is only issued for students who have taken all courses for degree-applicable credit.
