Psychology and Gender

PSY 385
Description: Evidence shows that all individuals are highly similar in terms of traits, attitudes, interests and behavior regardless of their gender identity or biological sex. Yet, gender differences are still exaggerated in popular discourse, gender nonconforming behavior is stigmatized, and institutional sex discrimination is entrenched. In this course, students study the impact of sex discrimination and gender inequality on the opportunities and wellbeing of individuals. Students explore 'what works' to improve gender parity in institutions and communities.

Prerequisite: Complete 57 Credits, minimum 6 credits from PSY, 200 level.
