PSYC 434 - CAPSTONE SEMINAR: CULTURAL NATURE OF DEVELOPMENT
“Human development is a cultural process. As a biological species, humans are defined in terms of our cultural participation” (Rogoff, 2003). We are prepared both by our cultural and biological heritage. In this course, we examine the regularities that give meaning to the differences and similarities in communities; practices and traditions, and guide human development. The course will provide an overview of current theory and research related to the multidimensional phenomena of human development across the life course. Emphasis will be placed on using a continuous dynamic models (e.g., Ecological Model by Bronfenbrenner) to study biological as well as psychosocial development as this allows for both risk and protective factors to be identified. Social policies guided by developmental research will be examined and assessed in light of a broader understanding of cultural influences.
