Child and Adolescent Psychology

Course Number
LSOC-411
Description

This developmental psychology course covers the issues encountered in studying human development and includes up-to-date information regarding typical development from conception through adolescence. The course is organized chronologically, beginning with the foundations of developmental science, followed by an exploration into infancy, childhood, and adolescent development. Within each developmental stage we will pay special attention to biological development (genetic predispositions and epigenetic changes), cognitive development (including perception, cognition, language, and information processing), and socioemotional development (including emotional, personality, gender, and social development). This course concludes with special considerations of biology and socialization as these pressures work to create gender, personality, and specific pubertal outcomes.
