Child Development I

Child Development I provides a comprehensive introduction to the principles of child development. Throughout the course the student is introduced to the history, theories, themes, and methods of studying development. We will also examine heredity, conception, prenatal development, and birth. Finally, we explore the development of the child during the first two years of life which includes the rapid and radical changes during this relatively brief period, individual differences in patterns of development, and inter-relations between the child and his/her world.
