PSYC201N : Human Growth & Development

The study of human growth and development across the lifespan is based primarily in the social sciences of psychology, sociology and anthropology. Emphasis will be given to maturation and development achieved in four interrelated systems: Physical, cognitive, social, and emotional. Development is about change; changes that we share as well as changes that are based on unique environments, social and cultural customs. Attention will be paid to controversies that have developed as a result of living in a diverse and multicultural world.
