This Developmental Psychology course provides broad information
necessary for learning about human development - general principles,
research, and applications. In this course, we will focus on the
developmental changes that take place from birth through
adolescence. We will look at several areas where changes occur
(emotional, perceptual, cognitive changes, etc) to think about what
exactly changes, and we will critically compare classic and
contemporary issues and theories of child development to think of
why these changes occur. In the process of studying these issues, we
will consider the research methods and interpretation of research
findings in developmental psychology.  The goal is, therefore, for
you to gain more knowledge about the details of human development
and ability to think critically about the relation between
developmental theory and research.
