The Psychology of Gender
PSYC 290
Fall 2009
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: FGSS 290

This course will examine gender as a construct with biological, social, and psychological dimensions. Theories of gender and gender differences will be reviewed and critiqued. We will also take an empirical look at gender differences across a variety of psychological and social phenomena and look at varying ways in which gender can be conceptualized and measured for the purpose of psychological inquiry. A major focus of the course will be on diverse experiences of gender identity, our ever-expanding terminology of gender (e.g., "gender queer"), and the pyschological and social implications of those identities.
