Developmental psychology is the study of behavioral change across the life
span.  In this course, we will focus on the developmental changes that
take place from birth through adolescence.  We will cover several aspects
of these changes including the major milestones of development in various
domains (what changes?), classic and modern theories of development (why
does it change?), and approaches to research in developmental psychology
(how do we know?).  After this course, you will know more about the
details of development and you will be able to think critically about the
relationship between developmental theory and research.
