TITLE OF SEMINAR: PSYC 255: Seminar in Social Psychology
Topic/Subtitle: Stereotyping, Prejudice, & Discrimination

INSTRUCTOR: Jimmy Calanchini

DESCRIPTION: This course examines the social psychological underpinnings of stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination. We will examine these topics from a number of perspectives, including sociocultural, motivational, and cognitive approaches. Specific topics to be covered include the origins of stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination; the ways in which these constructs are maintained and perpetuated; the ways in which they may be changed; the extent to which their expression is intended and controllable; and the effects on their targets.

TITLE OF SEMINAR: PSYC 258: Seminar in Developmental Psychology
Topic/Subtitle: Statistical Models of Change

INSTRUCTOR: Cecilia Cheung

DESCRIPTION: Developmental theories are typically concerned with intraindividual or within-person variability – how to affect, behavior, and cognition change or remain stable within individuals over time. What options do researchers have to test developmental theories of within-person variability? In this seminar, we will first review the potential mismatches between theories of development and certain statistical tools researchers have been using to understand within-person change (1 week). We will then consider three classes of statistical models, namely latent growth models, hierarchical linear models, and random intercept cross-lag panel models, and their application (6 weeks). The last 3 weeks will be dedicated to student-initiated topics and/or application of the methods discussed.
