Recommended? Yes
Available as Breadth? Yes

Ever wondered where babies came from? What happens while they spend 9 months being delivered by a stork? You learn about that in developmental psychology. It covers the behaviours and development of babies, how language and information is learned … you know, fun stuff. What wasn’t so fun was the assignment, which as 2000 words of “nothing to do with the lectures but it is kinda about development so here you go”. The exam was reasonable and if you go through the lectures, you will know your stuff. Overall, it was an interesting subject where you learn about the things that happened to you while you were younger but can only appreciate now, like learning how to talk and overcoming object permanence.
