Course Description Class sessions will include lectures, presentations by students in the class, in-class writing, discussions, and films. Activities that focus on prejudice and diversity will be an important part of classroom events. The class will engage in small group and individual experiential exercises designed to facilitate intrapersonal and interpersonal awareness of issues related to prejudice, discrimination, racial/ ethnic identity, etc. Many class sessions will involve group discussions – either in small groups or in the whole class group. Therefore it is imperative that students read before each class and come prepared to actively participate in class discussions. The success of this class is directly dependent on participation by students. NOTE: Many topics in this course may evoke strong emotions. Within the framework of individual expression, students are expected to show respect for others and their viewpoints, even when those views are opposed to those of the student. Course Goals and Student Learning Objectives Psychology of Prejudice will focus on the psychology of prejudice/inequality/discrimination. While there are many aspects to prejudice (i.e. very broad-ranging social and political consequences for individuals and groups), the purpose of this course is to explore the psychology of prejudice and discrimination in the US, the psychological factors involved, and the psychological effects on individuals and groups. From both theoretical and experiential perspectives, we will explore issues relating to those who hold prejudiced attitudes and those who are targets of those attitudes. We will examine prejudice relating to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, etc. The student learning goals for completion of the Psychology of Prejudice
