Examine the Cross-Cultural Relevance of Psychology through a Course in Vietnam!
Considering summer courses? Why not make Vietnam the inspiration of your studies? Through this uniquely designed program, you’ll familiarize yourself with some of the major theories guiding research in personality psychology, as well as in the area of early childhood intervention—through assessment, intervention and program evaluation.You’ll explore the impact that such findings have across cultures through visits to some of Vietnam’s most culturally significant sites such as the Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City, and the Old Quarter of Hanoi—Vietnam’s capital city.

The program ultimately culminates in a magical overnight cruise down Ha Long Bay. Your experience in Vietnam—and the cultural perspectives that it inspires—will forever lend to your understanding of psychology within a global context.
