PSYC 230 - Cultural Psychology

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: PSYC 100 or consent of instructor
As the world is becoming increasingly globalized and our society increasingly diverse, it is essential that we understand how individuals from other cultures think, feel and behave, and to understand the forces, beliefs and motivations that underlie their behavior as well as our own. Students will learn to critically analyze ethnocentric perspectives, understand the sociocultural influences on individuals’ worldviews, and recognize the factors that establish and maintain cultural norms. Emphasis will be placed on recognizing, understanding and respecting the complexity of sociocultural and international diversity including the role of power and privilege in shaping human conditions. Offered fall, spring, summer. (CGCL; CMCL; CSOC)
