Hi I’m Matthew Mundy and I’m the director of education for the School of Psychological Sciences at Monash University in Australia. In this course, you’ll learn about ‘Developmental Psychology’. It’s a field of psychology dedicated to studying the changes humans undergo throughout their life. You’ll learn about the terms used in this field and find out about some of the key transitions associated with different phases of development that humans go through. As in other fields of psychology, research is important to developmental psychology.
