PSYC 0363 - Cross Cultural Psychology

Credits: 3

This course will focus on understanding different cultural values, norms and beliefs - an ingredient for effective communication among people of differing cultures. Topics to be covered are the differences in cognitive processes that lead to misunderstanding and conflicts between members of different groups, e.g. differences in perception, thinking, verbal and nonverbal behavior. The goal of the course is for students to understand and become more comfortable with the ideas and behavior of others whose culture is different from their own.

Prerequisites: PSYC 0101 .
