Course Description
December 11 2006, 8:06 PM
By the end of this course, you should be able to explain how several psychological processes, considered to be universal, are influenced by cultural context.  You should also be able to provide examples of how research results often differ in diverse samples when compared with middle-class, European American/North American college samples.  To expose you to culturally sensitive research methods, you will be asked to design and write an empirical paper that builds on one of the studies covered in this course.
