What is "Typical?" Diversity in Human Development (FYS)
Fall 2020
Section: 01  

Much of psychological research aims to describe & understand human behavior by studying how typical people think or act in typical circumstances. However, quite a lot can be learned by looking beyond the average and examining the variability of human behaviors, experiences, and abilities. This First Year Seminar will explore the ways that atypical development, neurodivergent minds, and non-normative populations can broaden our understanding of human development. Students will develop academic writing skills while critically engaging with psychological research.
