Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Students study development from conception to adolescence. Students explore central concepts in the study of children and adolescents, including nature-nurture and introduction to epigenetics, qualitative-quantitative change, change-stability, developmental pathways and the roles of individual differences and diversity in development. Students are introduced to determinants of health as a framework for developmental outcome and encouraged to challenge 'common-sense' approaches and misconceptions about child and adolescent development by learning to evaluate relevant evidence in the field. This course may be credited towards Psychology.
