PS 265 Overview

The psychology of sexual orientation and gender identity are relatively new areas of interest to psychologists and interdisciplinary scholars, but are vastly growing fields. The research in these areas builds on research related to gender studies, developmental psychology, the social psychology of prejudice, feminist and transgender studies, queer theory, and cross-cultural psychology. An exploration of sexual orientation and gender identity is in keeping with professional psychology’s commitment to exploring and respecting people’s individual differences. It is also essential to psychology’s attempt to understand the impact of culture on personal development. Prerequisite: Students majoring or minoring in psychology must take PS 101 before taking this course.
