EAGSR 8205 Theories and Research in Human Development

In this course, students learn some of the major theories of human development, including empirical studies that support and challenge those theories. A major aim of the course is to explore human development as it occurs in real-life contexts. The course will involve theories and research studies that represent the multi-faceted and complex nature of human development. As an essential quality of human development, intra-individual variability is an important phenomenon that the course examines. This course has a major focus on moral development as a process of life-span human development that brings together cognitive and emotional dynamics.
