Bring an International Perspective to
your Psychology Practice!
* This program ran during the Summer 2013 Intersession -- Summer
2014 programs will be announced mid-December!
Take an international approach to the diverse field of
psychology by using Italy and Greece as the site and inspiration
for your learning.
The program will begin in Rome, Italy and then move on to
Athens, Greece where students are able to participate, gain
important contacts and learn at the 7th Annual International
Conference on Psychology, hosted by the Athens Institute for
Education and Research. Visits to Vatican City and the Coliseum in
Rome, as well as the Acropolis and National Archaeological Museum
in Athens will have you out-and-about exploring two of the world’s
most historically rich cities!
These intensive firsthand experiences will enable students to
move from an ethnocentric treatment model and bring a
multi-cultural perspective to their psychology service
