This course is an introduction to the study of culture and human behavior in general, and culture and mental health in particular. Although primary attention is given to cross-national research and research on the major U.S. ethnic groups, issues of gender, social class, and other forms of diversity are also addressed. Multidisciplinary perspectives are examined, in particular that of medical anthropology. Familiarity with Abnormal Psychology is desirable, but not required. This is an Integrative Foundations course. This course satisfies some of the requirements in Literary Studies: in both concentrations.
Open to Undergraduate students.
