The study of age-related cognitive, social and emotional behavior focusing on theories of development during infancy and childhood. Students learn how social factors—such as one’s family, socioeconomic status, and culture—impact upon human development, and the current state of affairs in America for factors (e.g., divorce, child care, single-parenting) that impact child development. The focus of the course is on human development within the American culture, but both book and lecture materials will also present cross-cultural comparisons. This course provides a foundation for other courses within the psychology department, such as child psychopathology, cross-cultural psychology, and the exceptional child.

Is it Nature or Nurture that Psych Profs are Liberal Wienies?
Reviewer timc123

I was honestly looking for some objective, scientific-type resource on Child Psychology that I might utilize in helping to raise my children properly. Instead, I wound up wincing from blow after blow of mushy, girlie dogma steeped in the Juvenile, Puerile Left Wing Catechism of Academe.

Sheesh! Just the facts, prof. Stick to methods and theories, and we'll make our own socio-political conclusions.

Not half an hour into the lecture series and I was already to attribute Human Sympathy to "Evolution," teenage pregnancy and single parenting as being "not a bad thing," the implication of IQ test results being a rationale for Socialism, and some bizarre excuse for why the free housing of Cabrini Green was a failure because...what was it...that poor people didn't do well living together? Can't remember. Not going back to check.

I want my Psych, like my Journalists and Scientists, to be like Mathematicians...cold, objective, and socio-Apolitical.
