PSY 315 - Advanced Social Psychology: Cross-Cultural Differences in Self-Construal

4 credits (Spring)
This seminar focuses on the construction of independent versus interdependent selves in cultures descendent from East Asian versus Western European historical and philosophical traditions.  We will consider sources of these differences, as well as a variety of social consequences.  This will provide the foundation for examining lay theories about the causes of behavior and considering the extent to which behavior is differentially determined by the person or the situation in different cultural contexts.

Prerequisite: PSY 214  and PSY 225 .
Note: Not offered every year.
Instructor: Sinnett
