PSY 310 Emerging Adulthood

This course explores the developmental changes that take place during a newly documented developmental period, emerging adulthood, which spans the ages of 18 to the late 20s. Over the course of the semester, we will investigate several questions about this developmental period by turning to the psychological literature, including: (1) What does it mean to be an adult? (2) What developmental changes are taking place during the college-age years? (3) Does being an emerging adult give one a “free pass” on deviant behaviors? (4) How does the current generation of college students differ from previous generations?




PSY 101, PSY 211, and one other 200-level course.
