(English-taught semester) Psychological dimensions of Gender & Diversity

Psychological dimensions of Gender & Diversity
"A gender-equal society would be one where the word ‘gender’ does not exist: where everyone can be themselves"

Today, gender inequality and diversity are at the forefront of discussion, as the issue has become an international concern for politicians, researchers, psychologists, social activists, and the general public. Consequently, the need to foster and sustain diversity and inclusiveness in the interactions among various groups of people is relevant today more than ever.

In recent years, our society has changed very rapidly in terms of how we view sexuality and gender. In this course, you will gain competency in understanding the diversity of people's experiences across the sexuality and gender spectrums. Topics include sexual and gender identity, the history of sexual and gender diversity, psychological approaches to understanding sexual and gender diversity (as well as critiques of this approach), intersections with sex and race, cross-cultural differences in sexual and gender diversity, mental health and well-being, prejudice against the LGBTQ+ community, and LGBTQ+ activism.
