Multicultural Psychology

Spring 2020

Taught By: Thomas Vance

Section: A

CRN: 7607

Credits: 3

This course is an introduction to multicultural psychology theory, research, and practice. This course will develop student’s awareness of being multicultural responsive (i.e., knowledge, awareness, and skills). It also aims to increase students’ understanding of and commitment to social justice in their personal and professional lives. This course examines multicultural topics within psychology, focusing on racial, cultural, and ethnic characteristics and identities, as well as other domains of difference, such as gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, ability, and their intersections. We will attempt to define multiculturalism and its role within psychological research and theory. This course will explore topics such as prejudice and stereotyping, minority status stress, cultural values and identities, immigration and acculturation, and mental and physical health among diverse cultural groups. These topics address the psychology field through a multicultural framework and highlight ethical education, research, clinical practice, and advocacy work in psychology (and allied fields).
