PSY 219 - Black Psychology (4 Cr.)

(LER-DIV) (GCR RPP)
Cultural psychology is a subfield within the areas of social psychology and cultural anthropology. It involves the study of the interconnections between and among intergenerationally transmitted behaviors, meanings, and symbols, and psychological processes such as cognition, affect, personality structure, and behavior. This course offers a foundation to the field through a case study of Black culture and psychology. Specifically, we will examine the cultural psychological experiences of people of African descent, primarily African Americans, and Black Psychology as a specialty with important implications for human and social science conceptual paradigms, theory, knowledge production methods, and intervention. Community Based Learning Course. Prerequisite: PSY 105 . Restricted to first-year and sophomore students only, or juniors and seniors with instructor permission. Fall semester. Grayman-Simpson.
