Introduction to Psychology: Developmental Psychology (FutureLearn)

Examine the physical, cognitive and social development we undergo throughout our lives. Learn about the psychological changes that all humans go through. As humans, we experience three phases of development over our lifespan: physical, cognitive and social development. On this course, you’ll investigate the key transitions associated with these phases of development, examining the psychological changes and exploring how and why these changes happen.

You’ll also consider whether development is continuous or discontinuous and to what extent development is influenced by nature or the environment, all before you explore designs and considerations for carrying out research in the discipline of psychology.
