In this course, we will analyze the patterns and processes of human growth and development. We will focus on how factors such as evolution, health and disease, genetics, diet and nutrition, ethnicity, racism, socio-economic status, political policies, pollution, and the overall environment in which a child grows can impact human growth around the world. This course will be discussion-based with multiple writing assignments and exams. Critical thinking skills will be required to unpack complexities across the biological, behavioral, and socio-cultural aspects of growth.
