Designed for Graduate Students
In this class we review graduate student developmental theory. In my version of this course, I take an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the role in children's development. This course would be a best fit for students applying to developmental grad programs and students who are interested in cultural research.

In this course you will have the opportunity to review theory and research on the cultural basis of human development. The research we will read in this class is interdisciplinary and draws from the fields of psychology, anthropology, education, and sociology. You will read original journal articles that analyze aspects of cultural variation in development across the human lifespan and popular readings that connect the class topics to current events. I will guide you in incorporating the concepts from the course to develop your own research study. In addition to feedback from me, you will give each other feedback on your research projects on a weekly basis.
