PSY 670 - Cognitive Development (3 Credits)

Prerequisite(s): 9 credits of core courses
This course will examine two related issues: theories of cognitive development and development in core domains (e.g., language, space, time, and social cognition). Our focus will be primarily on the development of children’s thinking, although we will also discuss cognitive development in other periods of the lifespan. Students will be evaluating, comparing and contrasting the various assumptions (behaviorist, information-processing, cultural-historical) that lie behind the various theories of cognitive development.
