Understanding Implicit Bias

This course explores how implicit stereotypes are shaped by experience and based on learned associations between particular qualities and social categories, including race. We will study how individuals' perceptions and behaviors can be influenced by the implicit stereotypes they hold, even if they are unaware/unintentionally hold such stereotypes.

We will also review how implicit bias functions as an aspect of implicit social cognition: the phenomenon that perceptions, attitudes, and stereotypes operate without conscious intention.
