This course includes:
Have you ever wondered about the notion of identity? Or how and why our personalities develop? These are just some of the questions covered by the field of developmental psychology.
Through the exploration of concepts such as attachment, deprivation, privation, and gender, this course will introduce you to the fundamental theories of developmental psychology in an attempt to provide you with an overview of how humans change and develop over their lifetimes, and particularly at an early age. We will focus closely on a number of experiments that have taken place over the years and the different conclusions these have reached about human development, and will also focus on key case studies. These will provide you with an excellent base from which to undertake a university application, and useful discussion material for applications and interviews.
If you’re someone who is interested by the human brain, or about what makes us develop in the way we do, then this Developmental Psychology course is the perfect place to start your exploration into the human mind.
