This course introduces students to the field of psychology that examines the influence of culture upon human behavior and cognitive processes. We will focus on such topics as cultural factors in communication (verbal, nonverbal), personality and identity, gender roles, health (mental and physical), parenting, and social values. Our exploration will be based on psychological theories, research, guest lecturers, and field experiences. [GM1, GM2]
