Background Knowledge Expected
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Even though the class is in a lecture format, the information is interesting and the professor always engages the students to participate and think about the material. The exams are relatively simple; all multiple choice exams with an optional final.
You learn about the psychological development of children, from gestation to adolescence. A wide variety of topics are covered in child development, such as language acquisition, social development, and the various psychological theories associated with child development (i.e. Freud, Piaget, Ainsworth's attachment theory).

Advice for students:
Make sure you do the readings before class, since the professor assigns online quizzes before each lecture. Studying for the exams isn't that difficult since the professor gives the class a study guide but make sure you study about 1-2 weeks in advance. There's a lot of stuff to memorize and exam questions ask about specific ages in development.
