Developmental Psychology: The Lifespan is the study of age related
changes from conception to death. The major theoretical viewpoints and the
latest research addressing physical, cognitive, personality, emotional,
social, moral, and career development are reviewed. Childcare, education,
discipline, dating, marriage, divorce, illness, elder care, peer
relationships, stress, aging, and sexuality are among the issues discussed.
This course is recommended for anyone who is interested in increasing their
understanding of behavior and its relationship to age. Psychology 2237
satisfies 3 of the 9 semester hours of the required Social and Behavioral
Sciences credits needed for the

Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) as a part of the General
Education Core Curriculum. Lifespan development is a required course for
several of the AAS degrees and
