Developmental Psychology (ODE)
This course offers the student a survey of developmental psychology, covering topics across the human lifespan, from infancy through to old age. Through readings and lecture material, students will examine theories of development and the research that bears on these theories. Students will also examine development across the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive domains. Finally, students will address major themes in the study of developmental psychology, including: the nature-nurture issue; the effects of early experience; and continuity-discontinuity in developmental change.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.OntarioLearn information
