The psychology is based upon the assumption of one normative path of development. This normative path has historically based upon a view of psychological well being that is homogenous and historically Eurocentric. Asian Pacific Islander Americans remain the fastest growing racial group in the United States. A generation of researchers in Asian American psychology has identified variables that are pertinent in the psychological adjustment of non-White groups, beginning with the work examining dimensions of collectivism and individualism.

Religious Studies at Yale offers a curriculum of challenging course work that approaches the history of human thought and practice while focusing on specific geographical, cultural, and philosophical areas of scholarly interest. Many disciplines suggest that they press students to think critically. The study of religion pursues critical thought in the context of social and intellectual formations that have consisted of revolutionary engagement, sectarian creativity, and significant acts of violence. It is impossible to study religion without a consciousness of this history: the history of dissent, rebellion, radicalism, and imperialism that inquiry into religion plumbs.
