Psychology at TC

In addition to the courses explicitly focused on racial and ethnic issues, many TC professors note that they discuss issues of race and diversity in their classes because of the curriculum entails research, field work or historical content in which racial issues are central – e.g. teaching practicum that entails working in racially diverse or racially segregated schools, courses in educational policy that cover the history of the Civil Rights Movement and or school desegregation, or courses in counseling that include issues of intercultural understanding.

Examples of current courses that fall under this category include:

  • A&HE 4053 Cultural perspectives and literature
  • A&HE 4056 Feminist Perspectives and Literature
  • A&HH 5051 Harlem Stories: Oral History and Digital Tools
