PSY 345: Social Psychology (Transracial)

Welcome PSY 345 Students


The MCU Library has created a guide to the best resources for your media project in PSY 345. The MCU Library offers instructional workshops designed to help students succeed in their time as an Undergraduate or Graduate Mariner. Our workshops teach relevant skills and encourage critical thinking about the research process. Start working on your own and contact your librarians if you need further help.

Research Topics: 

  • What does it mean to be transracial? Is this possible in the United States today? How is it similar/different than "passing" in past generations? Do some independent research to support your position. In your analysis, use and define social influence and three other concepts from Chapter 1. 

 As defined by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, transracial: involving, encompassing, or extending across two or more races.  

Passing is the state of being interpreted, accepted, coded as a certain identity by either another person or by society as a whole momentarily or permanently. The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Sociology defines passing as "a process by which an individual crosses over from one culture or community into another undetected."

As a scholar, you'll need to use new skills, test new strategies, investigate various angles, and engage thoughtfully in the analysis of what you discover. Our goal is to assist you with your research process and highlight valuable resources for you to explore and include in your Exam #1 Study Guide: Essay Section Prep.
