Presentation Location: Weber Center, Room 101

Abstract

Prejudice has been demonstrated throughout time in various ways. Prejudice can be manifested on the basis of race, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, gender, and/or religious affiliation. A psychological approach to prejudice focuses on variables that correlate with prejudice. Consistent with this, this study will be investigating relationships between religiosity, sense of power, and prejudice. Olivet Nazarene University undergraduates and other individuals were recruited through the use of social media outlets to serve as participants. An online survey measuring the study’s main variables (e.g., religiosity, sense of power, and prejudice) has been distributed, and data collection will finish on March 22, 2021. Relationships between the study’s main variables will be assessed using Pearson’s correlation and multiple regression.
