Instructor comments:

 Hello! I look forward to learning with you in Psychology of Adult Development and Aging!

We'll be exploring the expansive life-course period of adulthood and the intertwined processes of development and aging.

In addition to weekly reading and discussion assignments, there are three larger learning projects spaced over the span of the course: 1) an interview project; 2) a review of media project; and 3) a final synthesis & action project.


You don't have to purchase a textbook for this course as we'll be using a free digital resource available through the PCC Library: The Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of Adulthood and Aging.
