The aim of this study was to investigate whether a semester-long gender psychology course had an impact on the attitudes of undergraduates towards gender roles. To this and, a pretest-posttest analysis was carried out in a state university in Tokat, Turkey, employing a sample of 60 university students; 30 of whom had taken the course and 30 of whom had not. As a result of this study, it was concluded that the gender psychology course positively contributed to university students’ egalitarian gender role attitudes. Indeed, the attitudes of the university students taking the course changed considerably at the end of the semester, developing more favorable attitudes toward gender issues.
