PSYC13018  Cross-Cultural Psychology

The course explores the influence of cultural variables on human behaviour. As such, it looks at the development of cross-cultural psychology as a distinctive area of psychology and at recent attempts to devise theories that reflect the cultural, as well as social and developmental, bases of behaviour. The course also deals with a range of research methodologies that may be used by cross-cultural psychologists. Because the interests of cross-cultural psychologists are wide-ranging across the larger discipline, the course will deal selectively with topics such as culture and cognition, culture learning, culture and language, cross-cultural studies of personality, work, social behaviour and psychopathology to illustrate how cultural factors may influence human behaviour. It is a requirement of enrolment that students have access to the CQU website via the Internet.
