PSY 212 Psychology of Women (3 credits)
A study of the psychology of women from an historical and contemporary perspective. The main focus of the course is on the current revision and expansion of research on sex roles (sex differences and similarities). Such topics as, for example, sex-role stereotypes, the issue of fear of success in women (and men), and androgyny as an alternative to masculinity or femininity are considered in light of the relevant literature. Prerequisite: PSY 103.
