WGSS 352 - Psychology of Black Women

Cross-Listed as PSYC 352  
This seminar is designed to provide a critical analysis of the distinctive experiences of Black women using a psychological lens. We will explore a broad range of topics relating to Black women’s experiences in home, school, and community contexts, such as identity development, stereotyping, racial and gender socialization, media representations, sexuality, spirituality, and activism. The class will also consider how Black women draw on individual strengths and cultural assets to support their personal, academic, and psychological well-being. We will employ Black Feminist Theory and other culturally-relevant frameworks to guide our inquiry. Prerequisite(s): PSYC 100 , and either PSYC 201  or STAT 155 . Every year. (4 Credits)
