My name is Vias Nicolaides and i am emailing to inform you of a
wonderful opportunity this upcoming summer!
In cooperation with the Center for Global Education, I will be
spearheading a study abroad program in my country, Cyprus, a
beautiful paradise island in the Mediterranean. With warm sun,
sparkling sea, welcoming people and wonderful scenery, Cyprus offers
visitors a superb holiday destination packed with unforgettable
experiences, extraordinary sights and exquisite Mediterranean
cuisine. Cyprus is considered the pearl of the Mediterranean and
also the birthplace of the Goddess Aphrodite.
Students will have the opportunity to take 6 Psychology credits as
well as tour the island with locals and experience all that Cyprus
has to offer! (e.g., sandy beaches, exquisite food, and over 8,000
of history). Overall, instruction will take place from
Monday-Thursday, whereas from Friday-Sunday we will be taking tours
and overnight stays in key locations around the island.
Classes offered are PSYC 405: Mystery, Madness, and Murder
and PSYC 379: Applied Cross-Cultural Psychology which are
open to psychology and non-psychology majors.
PSYC 405 satisfies General Education requirement for synthesis and
PSYC 379 satisfies General Education requirement for global
understanding. Even if students have already taken one or both
offered classes, they can still receive 3 or 6 credits in PSYC 461:
Finally, it is worth mentioning that there are scholarships and
financial aid available to help finance your trip. In addition,
tuition for study abroad programs is paid at the in-state rate, even
for out-of-state students!
