    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course covers the multicultural issues of psychology which cover topics such as gender and ethnicity and how it affects each individual. Multiculturalism in education and the workplace are also discussed in this course and how they consist of different cultural boundaries depending on the location and customs of those locations. This course greatly highlighted clinical psychology practice in different settings such as schools, jobs, etc.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of this course was the analyzing of the differentiation of the atmospheres in each setting of people’s lives. The way that people act in their homes with their families is not the same way that people act in schools or in the workplace, and the way that people act in the workplace is not the same as the way people act in school settings. This was a topic often discussed in class and how people of different cultures also adhered to the different behaviors in different work settings, and it was interesting to study how our behavior changes throughout the day in different settings when we usually tend not to notice those changes. Clinical psychology was also another highlight of this course because it is very strongly involved in the study of multiculturalism affecting different individuals and their personal growth as a result of it, and this class may be especially of interest for people who are wishing to pursue a career in clinical psychology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course involves a lot of reading and discussion, so do be prepared for each class with having read the text before lecture and not just skimming but reading and analyzing key points of the text. Participation does count for this class, so staying mute will lower your grade. When it comes to discussions about our personal opinions on issues, there really is no wrong answer and no one was ever harshly judged for stating an unpopular opinion. Open discussion is very encouraged and you will feel like you are able to learn more and be keener about the topics discussed in class when being engaged in class discussions. We did not get exams, but we did get quizzes and two large group projects assigned, and though this may seem like simple work, it is very important to keep up with the reading so that you do not have to quickly skim it before class or finally get around to reading the text a few days before the big projects are due.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She was a great professor who really knew her stuff. The course covered different issues among different cultures when it came to psychology.

    Course highlights:

    When we were given article and asked to give our opinions, there was an openness among the class that I have never felt in a classroom. I learned about respecting others opinions while learning more about the different cultural aspects of psychology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read the text and never be afraid to ask questions. It is best to make use of your sources than to struggle alone. Make appointments to go over concepts that are confusing with the professor.
