SPECIALIZED SUBFIELD OF STUDY IN DIVERSITY AND INEQUALITY PSYCHOLOGY FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS
FULL TITLE: Ph.D. Specialized Subfield of Study in Diversity and Inequality Psychology
ABBREVIATED TITLE: D&I Specialized Subfield of Study
In recognition of long-standing inequalities of race, class, gender, and other marginalized identities in all spheres of life, including the academy, the Department of Psychology has created a specialized subfield of study in the area of Diversity and Inequality Psychology.
The D&I specialized subfield of study is well-suited to the interests of students pursuing empirical and translational science in psychology aimed at understanding, examining, and/or mitigating systemic, historical, and structural inequalities involving stereotyping, prejudice, stigma, discrimination, and/or disparities.
In addition to pursuing a doctoral degree in one of the core areas of psychology, graduate students may qualify by completing the requirements detailed in the Department of Psychology Graduate Handbook (see SPECIALIZED SUBFIELDS OF STUDY section).
