PSY 544 Seminar in Developmental Psychology

3 Credit(s) W-III


This seminar provides an opportunity for intensive study, in a small-group setting, in developmental psychology. Students will read and analyze advanced developmental literature and will engage in a substantial amount of informal and formal writing. Through revision of written work (based on feedback from peers and instructors), and through discussion of writing processes and conventions used by psychologists (e.g., from publication guidelines of the American Psychological Association), students will learn to express themselves more effectively. Students will also reflect upon the ways that writing can support learning of advanced concepts in developmental psychology. The topic will be announced in advance. Three lecture hours per week.
Prerequisites: WII, PSY203S , one of the following: PSY218 , PSY251 , PSY252 , or PSY322 , and at least six credits of PSY courses numbered 300-399.
