Psychology 
From crime, to well-being, to our relationship with food, psychology explores diverse aspects of the human condition. 

While our three Core Courses approach very different areas of psychology, all will critically examine psychological theory, research, and practice with an emphasis on Swedish and European perspectives.

Psychology of Food 
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
We all have a relationship to food and it is much more than physiology. This course explores the neurological, psychological, cultural, and social aspects of our relationship with food. Food’s historical and current meaning are considered: From Social Media Food Pornographers and ethically-inspired vegans to the paradox of growing obesity amidst malnourishment and eating disorders. Food can be used as means of social connectedness, be a mechanism of exclusion, or a theme in mental illnesses. Food is indeed psychology.
