This introductory course examines the interactions between maturational processes and environmental factors and the major physical, psychosocial, and cognitive/language developmental milestones for children, both typical and atypical, from conception through adolescence. While studying developmental theory and investigative research methodologies, students will observe children, evaluate individual differences, and analyze characteristics of development at various stages. Field-based assignments may be required. No credit for students who have taken PSYC 157. A negative TB test result and state-mandated immunizations are required for some fieldwork assignments and certificate completion.
