This course addresses developmental issues and processes pertaining to middle and later adulthood. Particularly emphasized are the following points: (a) adult development and aging occurs in a variety of contexts, and (b) these varying contexts set the stage for considerable inter-individual differences in adult development and aging.
This course has online exams that require a proctor. Online proctoring is available through ProctorU. For traditional site-based proctoring, a Proctor Agreement Form will be required.
This course can be applied towards:
HDFS 101 (Individual and Family Development) or HDFS 175 (Developmental Psychology Across the Life Span) or PSY 100 (General Psychology) or PSY 260 (Child Psychology).
All prerequisites must be completed or consent from the instructor given prior to enrollment.
