Primary Instructor:

This course provides an in-depth study of development during the period of emerging adulthood (ages 18 to 25+). We will examine the physical, cognitive, and socio emotional growth of emerging adults and the contexts (e.g., families, peers, romantic relationships, workplace, culture, media) that influence their development. The goal is to provide an overview of the current state-of-the-art regarding the transition to adulthood, and how larger historical, cultural, and economic forces impact emerging adults today. Students are encouraged to think critically about the theory and research on emerging adulthood and to integrate this knowledge with their own observations of human behavior. Moreover, students should consider the practical implications of current research in the field of developmental psychology for emerging adults and social policy.

Course Requirements:

Learning is viewed as a process through which the student is an active participant—not just a passive recipient.

Intended Audience:

First year students
