Intergroup relations research has a long history at Occidental
Research projects conducted in the Social Psychology/Intergroup Relations Lab are interdisciplinary and collaborative. Faculty, graduate and undergraduate students work in small groups to examine the relationships between social identities, dialogic pedagogical experiences, intergroup attitudes and social justice behaviors. Drawing on a range of methodologies (survey, experimental, focus group, and interviews) we focus on the psychological processes and learning outcomes associated with educational interventions.
Interested students with relevant upper division coursework in intergroup relations and social science methods are encouraged to learn about ongoing projects. Research opportunities are limited and in addition to relevant background, require a statement defining one's interests, relevant background, and learning goals. Please contact Professor Jaclyn Rodriguez email@example.com to discuss opportunities.
