Course Description and Objectives: This is a survey class in developmental psychology that provides an overview of human development from conception to death. The course explores the major periods of development from three perspectives: biosocial, cognitive, and psychosocial. By the end of the semester students will be able to identify major periods in development and articulate biological, cognitive, and social-emotional changes that occur during development. Students will also be able to describe how each one of these areas of development influences development in another domain. In addition to understanding these issues, students will learn about critical elements of psychological research.
Lectures will be delivered synchronously, over zoom. Please be aware that the University may record lectures. If a recording is made available to students, they may only use it for their personal academic use and may not share, display, distribute, publish or copy the recording.
