    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an essential area of study for psychology majors since it gives one a good undestanding of cultural differences which will be valuable for any psychology practitioner in any context. This will allow one to be able to make valuable decisions that will allow adequate room for cultural sensitivity so as not to offend clients, in various situations.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were cultural features in different groups which impact individuals' behavior, their perceptions, their beliefs, and their world views. I learned multicultural perspectives, theoretical presentations, and a better understanding of reasons why people have biases, engage in stereotypes, and even prejudices. Ofgreat significance I learned how not to have personal perception impede professional conduct,but instead use this cultural knowledege to enhance my professional practice as a scholar of change.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do adequate reading,respond to discussion posts, if online , interact with colleagues to learn more about culture.This will facilitate a better attitude toward accommodating inclusion which is necessary when in muticultural contexts, where diversity is embraced for a harmonious, productive, conflict free environment.
