Developmental psychology is the study of behavioral change over time.
In this course we will focus on the developmental changes that take
place from birth to childhood. We will cover several aspects of these
changes including the major milestones (what changes?) in physical
development, cognitive development, social development and emotional
development. We will discuss theories of development (why does it
change?) and research methodologies (how do we know?). After this
course you will have an appreciation for developmental psychology as a
science of change and be able to think critically about the
relationship between developmental theory and research.
