Title:   Social Identity, Stigma, & Coping      

Course Number:      PSY 0215A
Campus: Medford/Somer.   
Room: Fine Arts House 103

Course Description:
People who are targeted by stereotypes and prejudice experience the world in unique ways. This course investigates the psychological consequences of stereotypes for victims and examines how targets of prejudice actively cope with being members of devalued social groups. We will discuss short- and long-term outcomes for people who possess devalued social identities, including the development of strategies to protect well-being in the face of discrimination. In addition, we will discuss situational and interpersonal factors that facilitate versus undermine victims’ efforts to speak out about discrimination. This course will place an emphasis on empirical research and on teaching students how to interpret and critique research in social psychology. Recommendations: Psychology 13 and 32.
