INTDS 210 Overview

This course will use psychological theories to help explain the construction of the self and to explore how individuals navigate multiple facets of identity, including ethnicity, gender, sexuality, physical presentation, and psychological health. Through this exploration, students will see the intersectionality of identity factors in the development of the self, in cultivating relationships, and in forming views of the world. Students will have the opportunity to apply a psychological understanding of identity development to characters in literature who are coming to better understand who they are as individuals. These psychological insights will help students deepen their understanding of character development (and vice-versa), as a means to greater self-awareness and consideration of the world around them.
