AIM Cross Cultural Psych ST

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.
Under the experienced guidance of Dr Norbert K Tanzer, the Associate Professor of Psychology, you will be introduced to the theoretical concepts, methodological issues, and applications of cross-cultural measurement in the field of Cross-Cultural Psychology. 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.
Complementing the academic component of the course, there are numerous excursions in and around Graz, such as guided city tours. Other highlights of the course include a weekend trip to Vienna, a visit to the Sigmund Freud Museum and seeing Vienna’s famous Schloss Schoenbrunn Gardens.
