This course includes the study of major developmental theories and concepts as well as the research methods used in the study of lifespan development.

A survey of the major psychological perspectives on human nature (dynamic, dispositional, phenomenological, and cognitive/behavioral), including how each perspective does research, assessment, and treatment, and how each explains the origins and development of personality.
