Term: WN 2009
Subject: Psychology (PSYCH)
Department: LSA Psychology
Requirements & Distribution:
Advisory Prerequisites:
An introductory course in psychology or similar social science.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This introductory course will examine the theoretical frameworks of intergroup relations including how social identity groups form and how bias develops (prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination). We will also explore how people develop an understanding of their own social identity group membership, how groups are impacted by privilege and power dynamics, and how to develop advocacy for groups to which one does not belong. Students can expect to participate in class through individual and group projects as well as class discussion. While there will be some lecture, this course will also bring in videos, activities/exercises, and guest speakers to explore these issues.
