Course Description

PSYC1991OC, Global Behavioral Science, 4 credits

Eligibility: This course is open to undergraduates, graduate students, and visiting students.

Students will participate in a practicum hosted at the University of Cambridge (UCAM). They will work with 20 to 30 psychology students on the Junior Research Programme from multiple universities and countries who will join the practicum, along with over 100 other research collaborators. The objective is for students to get hands-on experience in carrying out behavioral science research, from study development to dissemination, while participating in a large, international collaboration. Specific skills to be acquired include multicultural teamwork, research design, data collection (internationally), data analysis, scientific writing, and academic presentation. Students are encouraged to engage in the publication and revision process, subject to feasibility. All contributors will receive authorship credit.

Academic Schedule:

The program is scheduled for students to arrive in the UK on July 25th, 2023 and leave on August 15th, 2023. Students will be expected to complete some assignments prior to the program start and occasionally will be expected to be available outside of regularly schedule course times in to support collaborators who are in different time zones. Outside of course meetings, students will be expected to complete independent tasks, training, group work, and maintain some flexibility in their schedule as needed.

To enroll in this course, you must apply to the Columbia Summer Research Practice in Global Behavioral Science​​​​​ Program through the Center for Undergraduate Global Engagement (UGE). ). Global Learning Scholarships available. Tuition charges apply.

 Please note that the program dates are different from the Summer Term A & B dates.
