PSY 4242 Psychology of Women and Gender (3 credits)

This course is designed to explore the psychology of women and gender using from a feminist social psychological perspective.

Topics in the course will include the ways gender is constructed and socialized; the female-deficit model perspective in psychological research; mental and physical health issues unique to gender minorities; and, how sexism and misogyny shapes the lived experiences of cisgender women, transgender women, and non-binary people. Prerequisite(s): PSY 1100, PSY 2200, PSY 3402, or consent of instructor.
