Combining theory and history with an active approach rooted in self-reflection, Multicultural Psychology applies a framework of self-awareness and social justice to foundational and current topics across Multicultural Psychology studies today. Multicultural Psychology focuses on identity and its social context to help students view culture not just as a minority issue, but a way of understanding all human experiences. Multicultural Psychology will help students apply concepts to their own lives at point of learning, to assess their own awareness and progress, and to consider their own role and ability to engage in social change. With this balanced approach, Multicultural Psychology helps students entering the course with varied levels of cultural and diversity awareness to understand their individual and social cultural contexts, to gain awareness of their interactions with others, and to understand the intersections that occur with other cultures across their lives and careers.
