This course examines a selection of the theoretical, empirical, and applied issues in the field of cross-cultural psychology, with the purpose of sensitizing students to a multicultural approach to psychology and its implications in the study of human behavior. Students will explore what is cross-cultural psychology and how it relates to constructs such as culture, ethnicity, race, social class, and identity, among others. The course will proceed with a discussion around aspects of human behavior that are universal and those that are culture specific, as part of developing an understanding of the basic dimensions of cultural variations and cultural influences on psychological processes.
