A new psychology course with a study abroad option is available this Spring!

Ever wondered what it would be like to grow up in another country? Or in another community in your own city?

What goals do communities and parents from cultures around the world have for their children? Where do these goals differ? Where are they the same? Explore answers to these questions and more with Dr. Roberts in a new class this Spring "Human Development as a Cultural Process" (in your schedule of classes as PSYC 383-483 "CULTRL NATURE OF HUMAN").

This course will offer cultural immersion experiences either in the Chicagoland area or abroad. Students interested in studying abroad will have the opportunity to explore human development in several communities in Guatemala over a 9 day stay in the Lake Atitlán and Antigua areas. This trip is priced at $2300 including airfare, board and transport in country, as well as most meals. Some financial aid may be available to help with this additional cost. Students who are not interested in going abroad would have a cultural immersion experience through service learning at non-profit cultural organizations in the Chicago area.

For more information about the course please contact Dr. Roberts (who will be teaching the course) at: <aroberts06@roosevelt.edu>, or Justin Osadjan in International Programs at: <josadjan@roosevelt.edu>. We look forward to hearing from you!
