The department offers a number of study abroad
opportunities for undergraduate psychology study abroad.
Psychology in Peru
You can get class credit for programs like the Psychology in Peru program, which offers three credit hours of PSY 499—Applied Behavior Analysis, Culture, and Mental Health.
In the Psychology in Peru program, you will have the opportunity to visit important cultural and historical sites such as:
- the catacombs of the church of San Francisco
- the pyramid ruins of the El Brujo complex, and the Plaza de Armas
- Machu Picchu
The cities of Lima and Trujillo, Peru both have a history of integrated cultures with contemporary and traditional/indigenous mental health practices. If you’re a psychology major or minor or graduate student, we encourage you to take this course as one of your electives.
The Psychology Scholar and Teaching Exchange Program (PSYCH STEP) is a collaboration between Northern Arizona University (NAU; USA) and the University of Groningen (The Netherlands; RuG).
The NAU-RuG Master’s Exchange Program gives you the opportunity to spend one semester studying abroad while continuing your graduate education. You will attend RuG one semester during the second year of the graduate program.
Your first step in the application process is to talk to your adviser to discuss the exchange program. In addition to the basic eligibility requirements, there needs to be a fit in research interests between you and one of the RuG faculty.
