  • Overview

    Cross-cultural psychology is the study of human behaviour across cultural groups. It considers the limitations of traditional mainstream psychological knowledge and covers a wide range of topics in psychology. The course considers both etic (universal principles) and emic (culture-specific) psychological knowledge and seeks to develop a better understanding of the main issues typically examined in cross-cultural psychological theory and research.
