EKU Psychology Program Offers Study Abroad Opportunity for Online Students

Online psychology students will have the unique opportunity to earn up to six hours of credit while exploring one of the most exciting cities in the world. The Kentucky Institute for International Studies and EKU are offering two psychology courses during the 2015 summer session in Paris.

Students may choose to participate in one or both of the offered courses, which include:

  • The Psychology of Art
    In this course you will study psychopathology and artistic creativity through the life and work of Van Gogh, Picasso, Monet, Utrillo and others. You’ll learn about the artistic personality, the social psychology of creativity, and how we understand and appreciate art. You’ll also learn the role that art can play in the treatment of psychological disorders and visit one of the oldest psychiatric hospitals in Europe.
  • Nonverbal Behavior
    In this course your classroom will be the magnificent city of Paris! You will learn to look at humans in terms of what we do, rather than what we say. You’ll study Parisians in their natural habitat: cafes, parks, metro stations and strolling along the Champs E’lysee. You’ll investigate cultural differences in personal space, touch, gestures, and how the built environment affects our behavior. 

Scholarships are available and the class schedule allows ample free time to explore Paris on your own or travel to other parts of France as well as other countries.

All online psychology students in good standing are eligible to participate in this exciting opportunity. These courses will count toward your degree. The program will take place from May 30 thru June 29, 2015.
