Program Description
Followed by the high demand and exceptional feedback for the July program, AIM Overseas is proud to offer the Cross-Cultural Psychology program again this December.

For the duration of 3 weeks, you will gain an in-depth understanding of human behaviours and mental processes, including both their variability and invariance under diverse cultural conditions. This course is highly interactive and experiential with its mixture of lectures, class discussions and team assignments.
