Overview

Help students understand how culture impacts development- and why it matters.

Through current research and examples of human development around the world, Arnett’s Human Development teaches students to think culturally about their own development and see how it applies to their own lives and future careers.

New U.S. and international videos, shot in several countries, allow students to observe similarities and differences in human development across cultures. Video Guides are included in each chapter, at the end of each section. Students can quickly scan the Video Guide’s “QR code” and link directly to a short video clip using their smart phone. Videos are also available on MyDevelopmentLab.
