Psychology and Study Abroad...

Psychologists study the behavior of humans, but not all humans are alike; understanding another cultural perspective can help a future psychologist analyze specific behaviors and interpret and make comparisons between social institutions. Immersion in another culture can give psychology students a deeper educational background on identity, lifestyle, and behavior.

See the list of recommended study abroad programs below.  Please be aware that for any external or exchange study abroad programs listed, students will need to check with their academic department to see if courses taken while abroad will transfer and fulfill needed requirements.
