Using real-world examples, we will explore child development and psychological theories in human development from biological, socio-emotional, and cognitive perspectives, with a focus on the period from in utero through adolescence. Emphasis will be placed on development in a cultural and environmental context.
Topics will be covered through texts, workshops, and lectures.
Student progress will be assessed through discussions, written assignments, and participation in program activities.
This course will be fully remote. To successfully participate in this program, students will need reliable high-speed internet access, a computer and a smartphone or digital camera.
Students can expect the course to be a blend of about 4 hours a week of asynchronous (self-paced) and 2 hours a week of synchronous activities. At the end of the program, students will be ready be for future studies in psychology.
