PSYCHOLOGY 159 Section:
Spring Quarter 2011
|Prerequisites:||Psychology 1, 41|
This course provides an overview of gender, social-sexual interactions, and reproduction. The course is broken down into two sections (i) the biological and social development of sex and gender identity and (ii) human reproductive cycles and infertility. We will address questions such as how does a female develop from a zygote to a person who identifies as a woman? What underlies disorders of sex development? What is a typical female cycle? What is infertility and how can we avoid it?
We discuss biological mechanisms at length in order to understand more psychological issues. Whereas we will spend time understanding basic processes, you will also need to apply your knowledge about these processes to solve problems in the real world.
