CHILD PSYCHOLOGY: DEP 3103-03 Fall 2010 Instructor : Dr. Barbara Licht (pronounced Light) Meetings: Office Hours: Tuesday & Thursday 1:45 to 3:15, and by appointment. Please do not hesitate to ask for an appointment if my office hours do not work for you. Office : B331 PDB : 644-6272; [email protected] TA : Timothy Wright: [email protected] Required Text : Child Psychology: A Contemporary Viewpoint, Seventh Edition, 2009 . By R.D. Parke and M. Gauvain Prerequisites: Successful completion of General Psychology. Those who have not completed General Psych. are expected to have a difficult time with some of the material.

If unusual circumstances prevent you from taking a regularly scheduled exam, you should notify me right away to arrange a make-up exam. When you take the make-up exam, bring documentation of the reason for missing the exam (e.g., doctor’s excuse, police report of car accident). If you do not have documentation, contact me to discuss this. I understand that you may not have a doctor’s excuse even though you are too sick to come to class.
