PS 368 Infancy (Fall/Spring: 3)
PS 260 or permission by instructor
How do babies perceive the world? What do they understand about people and
objects? What draws them to other people? How do they achieve the beginnings
of symbolic thought and language? What about these early skills are distinctively
human? Looking at the first few years of life, this course reviews past
and current research, providing an understanding of the interactive role
of genetics and the environment on this very important period in human development.
Students will present course readings, participate in class discussions,
and work with infant behavioral data.
