EDUC 2003 - Human Development♦


(5 cr.) To fully appreciate and understand ourselves and others, we must have a basic understanding of human cognitive, emotional, and social development. In this course, education professionals examine the basic developmental stages that all humans undergo throughout their lifespan, from infancy to adulthood. They explore these topics with consideration to issues of gender, ethnicity, social class, and culture. Applying course concepts and theories, education professionals engage in an integrative project through which they create a character for whom they map human development and progress benchmarks from infancy through early adulthood. Through this project, they gain a deeper understanding of life-span development and major theories used to view human development.
