HOD-804 Human Development

4 semester credits
This course presents original readings of the history of the field including psychoanalysis, depth psychology, and behaviorism, cognitive and humanistic approaches. In addition students learn the assumptions and applications of current approaches including transpersonal psychology, consciousness, brain physiology, queer theory and positive psychology. Students examine basic differences in theories including: what the goal of development is; are developmental stages important or do we need to just look at empowerment; or can we use critical theory to question the societal oppression of people. Students will be able to examine three theorists and their assumptions, and also create a scholarly paper on one specific area of human development.
Delivery Method: Online
