Advanced Research in Social Psychology: Social Representations of Crime in Children's Television
PSYC 375
Spring 2025
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

This is an advanced research seminar examining the relationship between adult understandings about crime and criminals and the images depicted in children's entertainment. Working with the instructor, students will become part of an active research lab, collecting and analyzing qualitative data that will ultimately contribute to a project that aims to connect early childhood media exposure to adult understandings about such things as the "causes" of crime, the demographics of crime, and solutions to crime. Students will gain significant knowledge about and fluency with social representation theory, as well as hands-on experience using a variety of qualitative data analysis techniques.
