This program spends six weeks in Athens, Greece to study the psychology of religion, and cross-cultural psychology.
Modern Greece is over 90% Greek Orthodox, but Athens was one of the world's cradles of polytheistic belief systems prior to Christianity. This program explores the origins of religion and belief in Greece; the evolution of religion and belief, and the country's transformation from polytheistic to monotheistic belief systems. The program also explores the psychological need and purpose of religion and its impact on us from an existential perspective.
During the Cross-Cultural Psychology course, students will be exposed to different Greek cultural views on a variety of issues, such as education, science, mental health, food & drink, refugees, the environment, and the return of cultural artifacts, while living alongside Greek citizens in local apartments outside of the touristy neighborhoods.
Program site visits will include:
Summer: May 16 - June 28, 2020
