Instructor notes: This is a late start onsite course (meeting on campus twice a week). The first two weeks missed (because it is a late start) are made up by shifting some class activities online. There are no exams, and no final exam (we don't meet during finals week). Instead, there are critical thinking short writing assignments that are part of each week. A great way to explore Human Development. A sample of the course syllabus is posted at
