Content and Theory

Critically evaluate issues related to studying developmental processes as well as study and practice critical thinking skills.

Critically synthesize information learned from previous human development courses by examining how biological (e.g., temperament) and environmental (e.g., parents and peers) processes interact to shape development.

Demonstrate how to examine current issues in human development developmentally.

Critically synthesize the information, skills, and abilities learned in the first three units in an examination of the period of development recently termed "emerging adulthood" (ages 18-27).
