Primary Instructor:

This graduate seminar considers social and cognitive functioning across the lifespan. We consider models of normal development in childhood, adulthood, and old age. We examine findings from cross-sectional and longitudinal studies investigating age, cohort differences and lifespan change. We will discuss the major theories and research currently influencing developmental science. Of special interest is how early life, especially early life circumstances are related to later life functioning.

Course Requirements:

The course involves weekly readings of textbook chapters and journal articles and weekly submission of questions about these readings prior to each class. We also discuss research ethics, graduate research proposals, professional societies, and publication outlets

Class Format:

The course format will be that of a seminar, where we spend class time discussing the readings and considering their implications. We will also have guest faculty presenting their findings. It is therefore essential that you come to class having read the materials carefully and being prepared to discuss the readings.
