Cross-Cultural Psychology in P

Program Description:
As a supplement to its Psychology curriculum, the College of Sciences has designed a study abroad program for undergraduate students interested in cross cultural psychology at UCF.

This Study Abroad Program is designed to bring together a group of students from the United States (matriculated at the University of Central Florida [UCF]) and Peru (matriculated at Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola [USIL]) in the context of a course called Cross-Cultural Psychology.  The course will be taught in English, followed by a 1-hour English-Spanish Conversation Class during which time topics addressed in the course will be discussed among U.S. and Peruvian students who will be divided into pairs. In the Cross-Cultural Psychology course, both UCF and USIL students will study myriad aspects of selected populations.  In addition to the information learned in the course, UCF students will experience life in a distinct culture, learn about the pre- and post-Colombian history of Peru (via excursions locally and to Cuzco, Peru and Machu Pichu), and learn and practice Spanish, regardless of their current fluency in Spanish.  USIL students—in addition to learning information from the course—will interact extensively with U.S. students and learn and practice English, regardless of their current fluency in English.  It is anticipated that UCF and USIL students will interact informally outside the university context to maximize their intercultural experiences with each another.

Students should plan to arrive in Lima, Peru on the starting day of the program.  Students should not purchase their flights until they have been advised by Study Abroad to do so. Study Abroad advises that you book your flight directly with the airline.  

Learning Outcomes:
  • Students will obtain a broader perspective on humanity by means of critically examining various cultural groups, and exploring student’ own cultural world.  Learning about other life styles and cultures provide various benefits to students, such as expanding their perspective on the human condition.
  • Learn more about contemporary, and to a lesser degree, pre-Colombian Peruvian culture, values, social norms and worldviews.
  • Improve their ability to understand, comprehend, and express themselves in Spanish
  • Compare and contrast a wide array of social values and norms of mainstream USA with Peru.
