This course provides an overview of the field of cross-cultural psychology. It will review contemporary theoretical approaches to the study of culture and psychology, such as evolutionary psychology, indigenous psychology, and multicultural psychology. Students will participate in individual and small-group projects that explore the concept of culture and its relationship to psychological development. Port of call visits will provide first-hand opportunities to apply the material covered in class, or discuss it with research or treatment professionals in those countries.
Country: England Day: 4
In the first part of the day, students will visit with a sexual health counselor and writer, hear from local teen moms, and engage in a discussion with experts in the field of sexuality education on global and local issues in teen pregnancy and HIV prevention. These events will likely be held at the University of Southampton. Following this, students will have lunch on their own, either at the university cafeteria or nearby restaurants. In the second half of the day, students will tour one or two popular public venues to observe teens "in the wild". The day's activities will conclude with a debriefing and discussion on the social construction of teen sexuality as deviant behavior, likely to be held at a nearby coffee shop. The discussion will focus on social policy implications related to the collision between accelerated sexual maturation and a delayed cultural maturation.
