Different theoretical approaches to the study of social development will be reviewed as well as factors relating to individual (e.g., gender, temperament, race), interpersonal (e.g., peer relationships), familial (e.g., parents, family structure), and socio-environmental influences (e.g., schools, neighborhoods, and culture) on children.

Although the readings are primarily related to childhood and adolescence, the course will involve a lifespan approach on the topics. All readings (chapters and journal articles) for class will be provided on the course website.
