Course Description

This course examines the topic of gender from a psychological perspective - the behaviors and attitudes that relate to (but are not entirely congruent with) biological sex. This course explores gender as a psychological construct and a situational variable that influences our experiences in a number of contexts. We will examine the various methods used to study gender and evaluate research associated with specific gender-related issues. This course will emphasize variability within sex and gender categories, including issues associated with culture, race, gender identity and sexual orientation.

Prerequisite: PSYC1010
