Study Abroad Nepal : Social Psychology Summer 1 (PSYC 4305)

June 9, 2019 - June 19, 2019

$4700 (Includes some meals, CISI Insurance, excursions, lodging, and airfare)

Nepal, country of Asia, is lying along the southern slopes of the Himalayan mountain ranges. It is a landlocked country located between India to the east, south, and west and the Tibet Autonomous Region of China to the north. Its territory extends roughly 500 miles (800 kilometres) from east to west and 90 to 150 miles from north to south. The capital is Kathmandu.

The Study Abroad to Nepal is intended to provide students pursuing psychology and other majors at Tarleton an experience of the Himalayan land of Nepal. The course of PSYC 4305 fulfills the mission of applied learning experience, a part of Tarleton's strategic goals, by engaging the students in applied learning in order to broaden and strengthen connections between theory and practice and enhance their global perspective. In this course we will focus on topics in social, developmental psychology, examining them in light of various cultural backgrounds and orientations. Additionally, through a study abroad experience students will have a firsthand experience of the life-style and culture of a collectivistic society.
