PSYC 037. Multicultural Psychology


As individuals, we function in environments we share with others. In those contexts, we learn about what it means to be and how to behave as members of a group or groups. Further, societally, group membership is associated with power and privilege for some, and marginalization for others. In this course, we will review how researchers have conceptualized culture, difference, and multiculturalism. A significant portion of the class will be spent considering race, ethnicity, and culture from a psychological perspective, particularly as they relate to interactions between dominant and nondominant groups. Identity, discrimination, intersectionality, and privilege are a few of the topics we will discuss.
