DPSY 6228 - International Perspectives on Human Development


(5 cr.) The focus of this course is on exploring human development from an international perspective and examination of how biological, cognitive, social, and emotional development of children, adolescents, and adults are viewed in an international context. Students will examine human development and behavior in an ecological, psychosocial, and sociocultural framework, with special emphasis on gender and culture. Topics will include cognitive functioning, language acquisition, individual and social identity formation, social-emotional development (such as the parent-child relationship, attachment, social relationships), and gender role development within an international, cross-cultural context and encompass normal as well as abnormal behaviors as valued and accepted in different cultures.
