PSYC4006 Psychology of Gender (3 units)
- PSYC1005 Principles of Psychology
The course discusses how gender interplays with biological, cognitive, behavioural, and psychological factors in affecting men and women's functioning, experience, and well-being. It explores the meaning of a gendered perspective and how it systematically influences norms, standards and resources across personal, institutional, and socio-cultural levels. Psychological models to gender development and construction are examined with underlying scientific principles and findings. Students are expected to engage in intellectual dialogues and critical reflection about gender role and how it intersects with various aspects of life. Controversial and sensitive themes are discussed as the course investigates gender-relevant issues in global contexts.
