Program Description

CROSS-CULTURAL PERSPECTIVES IN CHILD DEVELOPMENT

Sweden has a long and unique history of caring for its citizens. The Swedish Model is unique in that it provides significant amount of care, all paid for through a high tax system. Sweden has the highest level of maternity benefits in the world, providing 68 weeks of paid maternity leave. Students will discover and appreciate the large diversity of contexts and experiences of child development that a domestic course could not provide. In addition, the well-preserved historical and cultural sites provide unique experiences for students to see first-hand the many differences in American and Swedish culture, as well as evaluate the differences (if any) this has on child development. Students will also interact with local culture and local students at Stockholm University as well as local business and facilities that serve youth to gain a greater understanding of the culture. All students will take a psychology course “Cross-cultural perspectives in child development” which will be taught in English. Through selected readings, lectures and excursions to major historical sites and institutions related to child development, students will learn about the impact of historical and cultural context on the development of children.
