PSY 504: Topics in Child Development
Prerequisite: Graduate Psychology majors
The goal of this course is to conduct a detailed exploration of several domains of child development. After reviewing research methodology and overarching theoretical concerns specific to developmental psychology, the course will focus on physical and motoric development, cognitive development, social development, emotional development, and moral development. Starting with a review of the basic developmental theories applicable to each domain, readings from the current literature on typical and atypical development will be examined.
