PSYC/WOST 238: Gender & Sex Differences and Similarities Spring 2011 Instructor: Jeffrey R. Huntsinger, Ph.D. Office Hours: by appointment Office Location: 212 Coffey Hall E-mail address: [email protected] Course Description: What are the psychological and behavioral differences between men and women? What is the origin of these gender differences? How do they affect the lives of men and women in work, relationships, etc.? This class will engage psychological research and theory to examine the influence of gender on the lives  of men and women. Emphasis will be placed on understanding gender as a social psychological construct. Class Structure Grading breakdown (120 total points) Semester exams: There will be four exams during the semester. Each will consist of multiple choice questions, and each will cover the material between the current exam and the previous exam (e.g. they will not be cumulative). Only students’ three highest scores will be applied to their final grades. These exams will consist of 25 multiple choice questions. Final exam: The final exam will be the same format as the previous exams – except it will be cumulative. You will be able to bring along a “cheat-sheet”. I will explain what this is on the last day of class. The final exam will consist of 40 multiple choice questions. Final project: There will be a final project for this course worth 5 points and is due the last day of class. For the project, you will find a multimedia example of a topic or theory discussed in class and write a paragraph describing how the video, for example, illustrates or relates to this topic or theory. Policy on make-up exams: Since students can take 3 out of 4 semester exams without affecting their final grade, there will be no (I repeat, no) make-up semester exams .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
