Synopsis

The three goals of developmental psychology are to describe, explain, and optimise human development. This course aims to provide students with the knowledge necessary to achieve these goals. This course takes a life-span approach, introducing students to essential theories and methodologies employed in developmental study, as well as the characteristics and major developmental tasks of individuals at each phase of the life span: prenatal, birth, infancy, toddlerhood, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and the final phase of dying and death.
