Janna Kim received her B.A. in psychology from Occidental College, and her Ph.D. in developmental psychology from the University of Michigan. She was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for Research on Gender and Sexuality (CRGS) at San Francisco State University before joining the Child and Adolescent Studies Department at Cal State Fullerton in August of 2006.

Research areas

Dr. Kim examines how families, peers, and the mass media shape young people's developing notions of sexual roles and relationships, and how these processes are embedded within a larger system of cultural values and beliefs.  In one line of research, she examines the sexual socialization and sexual decision-making of Asian American youth. In a second line of research, she examines the impact of television viewing and magazine reading on adolescents’ gender and sexual development.
