HDFS Course Offering in OSU Portland Center for Spring 2019

What does it mean to be an adult? When does adulthood begin and how does it progress over the many decades that most of us will experience as we travel through the life course? In what ways do we change and stay the same? How are our experiences of development and aging in adulthood shaped by who we are and the contexts in which we live? How are development and aging related – and distinct – processes? Students can explore these questions (and many more!) in HDFS 314: Adult Development and Aging (4) this spring. The course will be offered at the OSU Portland Center at Pioneer Square from 2-3:50 pm every Tuesday from April 1-June 2. Learn more about HDFS courses in Portland via Ecampus.
