PSYCH 285 Cross-Cultural Psychology

3 Credits

This course will introduce you to the scientific study of cross-cultural psychology which examines various psychological phenomena and processes from cultural perspectives. You will consider what culture is and how culture influences psychological processes. You will learn about the theories and empirical findings on cultural similarities and variations through a variety of readings (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles, chapters, and magazine articles) as well as videos and films. You will connect and apply knowledge you obtain in this course to your own life experiences. By understanding and reflecting upon cross-cultural differences and diversity in psychological processes, you will broaden your perspective, and view others who may be different from you with compassion and reverence. You will critically analyze and evaluate yourself and your interactions with others through a cross-cultural lens.
