Psychology: Developmental

Course Code: PSYC 210

Academic Year: 2019-2020

In this course, students will trace human development from conception to death, studying the many physical and psychological changes that occur over the span of a lifetime. Organized chronologically, the course will address a number of important questions: How do heredity and environment combine to produce particular developmental outcomes? What behavioural, emotional, cognitive and personality characteristics are associated with specific age groups? How can we best understand the changes that we, and the people close to us, experience over the course of our lives? Additional Information: Students in the Early Childhood Education and Child & Youth Worker programs CANNOT take this course.
