PSY-6202 - Psychology of Gender

Semester Credits: 3 Weeks: 8

In this course,  you will explore the way in which gender is understood and how it is informed by socialization, physiology, biology, and stereotyping. Gender differences are often overemphasized; in actuality, there are fewer differences than often assumed. Issues of transgender and intersex variations will be discussed minimally, as these topics are the focus of another course. Central to this course will be an opportunity to rethink and reintegrate ideas about gender differences and gender similarities across cultures. Further, the course will conceptualize gender on a spectrum instead of as a binary construct and explore historical milestones in the gender equality movement.
