PSY 223 Diverse Populations

This course will allow students to explore research findings and intervention strategies for a diverse range of populations. (Examples may include but are not limited to: first-generation college students, immigrants, veterans, foster youth, communities of color, LGBTQ, individuals with developmental disabilities, etc.)  Students will be allowed some direction in course content to ensure that populations of interest are explored.  Students will also have the opportunity to apply readings to settings/roles in which they plan to work (e.g., community colleges and other higher education settings, preK-12 education, non-profits, behavioral intervention, case management, etc.). The needs, experiences and outcomes of specific populations will be viewed through an equity lens, prompting questions of institutional and individual accountability to effect change.
