Course Description"This course aims to focus on the psychological framework for the study of prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination. We will discuss the experiences of various stigmatized groups, including but not limited to prejudice based on age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, and society-economic class. Students will be exposed to the concepts of privilege/marginalization, intersectionality, and visible/subtle forms of prejudices and their impact across individual, interpersonal and institutional levels. We will also explore psychological, sociocultural and media perspectives to recognize the complexity involved in the formation, activation, and strategies for reducing and responding to prejudice and discrimination."
Students should have taken previous coursework in one of the following areas: Psychology, Statistics, Science, or Communication Sciences and Disorders.
Additionally, students must be adults age 18 or older and currently be enrolled at another college or university at the Junior or Senior undergraduate level.
