CP 320 - Psychology of Culture, Power, and Inequality

3 Credit(s)
It examines the role played by culture in explaining persistent inequality in the distribution of resources and power.   The course will examine the unique inequity processes across different social groups, such as race, class and gender as well as the intersection of these statuses.  The course will introduce key social psychological concepts and apply theories to understand how and why inequality persists in the US.  In this class we will cover some of the most important concepts (e.g. stigma) for understanding inequality and examine several key axes (e.g. gender) along which inequality is created. Prerequisite(s): CP 301 Introduction to Community Psychology
