As U.S. colleges and universities attract an increasingly diverse student body and incorporate global perspectives across the curriculum, international study has become an important part of higher education. Building on the foundation laid by the APA-sponsored book Undergraduate Education in Psychology: A Blueprint for the Future of the Discipline (Halpern, 2009), this book offers teachers of psychology what they need most to internationalize the undergraduate curriculum: clear approaches to studying psychology across cultures, practical ideas they can use in the classroom, resources that connect students to the world beyond their home campus, and expert advice on how to develop and administer study abroad programs.

About the Author:

Dana Gross, PhD, associate dean for interdisciplinary and general studies and professor of psychology at St. Olaf College, has been a member of the faculty there since 1988. She is affiliated with the Asian Studies Department and the Linguistic Studies Program. She has served as coordinator of St. Olaf's U.S. Student Fulbright Program and is currently director of an interdisciplinary individual majors program. Dr. Gross received her BA in psychology from Smith College and her PhD in child psychology from the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota.


Kenneth Abrams, PhD, is an associate professor of clinical psychology at Carleton College. At three U.S. colleges, he has developed cross-cultural psychopathology study abroad programs in the Czech Republic and has led six term-long programs there to date. Additionally, he has made numerous presentations on internationalizing the undergraduate psychology curriculum at conferences in the United States and abroad and coorganized with Dana Gross a June 2011 conference in Northfield, Minnesota, "Finding Our Way: Strategies for Internationalizing Undergraduate Psychology."


Carolyn Zerbe Enns, PhD, is a professor of psychology and a contributor to the ethnic studies as well as the gender, sexuality, and women's studies programs at Cornell College, Mount Vernon, Iowa. Dr. Enns was born and raised in Japan, spent 2 years as the resident director of the Japan Study Program (2006 2007 and 2012 2013), and has had a lifelong interest in intercultural learning. Her teaching and scholarship have been informed by sabbatical research and teaching experiences in East Asia as well as seminars and field study experiences sponsored by the East-West Center in Hawaii.

Review:

In addition to assisting the reader in linking international psychology to APA's learning gold for undergraduates, this book challenges the readers to think how to integrate international psychology throughout the undergraduate curriculum to truly encourage students becoming global citizens. --PsycCRITIQUES

Book Description American Psychological Association, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. As U.S. colleges and universities attract an increasingly diverse student body and incorporate global perspectives across the curriculum, international study has become an important part of higher education. This book offers teachers of psychology what they need most to internationalize the undergraduate curriculum: clear approaches to studying psychology across cultures, practical ideas they can use in the classroom, resources that connect students to the world beyond their home campus, and expert advice on how to develop and administer study abroad programs.Building on the foundation laid by the APA-sponsored book Undergraduate Education in Psychology: A Blueprint for the Future of the Discipline (Halpern, 2009), every chapter includes practical, field-tested ideas for leading study abroad programs or infusing on-campus courses with global perspectives.Contributors share ideas for developing both short- and long-term study abroad programs in psychology, and addressing practical issues such as student safety and technology use.
