Required Written Assignment (200 points)
A written assignment is required not only to enhance your learning opportunities in Psychology, but to utilize and improve your writing skills, and your multicultural knowledge. The ability to communicate in written form will serve you in your future academic work, increase your career marketability, and hopefully enhance your chances of survival in an increasingly complex society. It is hoped that this written assignment will broaden your exposure to, arouse your interest in, and increase your knowledge of psychology in your own culture, and/or different cultures.
The purpose of this project is threefold: 1) To help each student become more self-aware of his/her own thoughts about diversity through introspection, self-examination, and active questioning of own biases and stereotypes. 2) To allow for an open dialogue about various diversity topics, in order to learn through our research about multiculturalism, pluralism, and diversity.
