PSYC 41495 Close Relationships Through the Lens of Culture

Course Name: PSYC 41495 Close Relationships Through the Lens of Culture

Description: If we spend our whole lives living in a single culture, we can come to believe that our experiences, including the “rules” we learn about close relationships are universal.  Yet research that examines close relationships in different cultures points to many differences.  This class is an opportunity to explore how relationships with family members and peers are influenced by the cultural context.  We will consider what aspects of relationships might be universal, and what aspects might be culturally specific, in the age range of 10 to 22 years of age.
