Course: CADV 373. Emerging Adulthood (3)
Prerequisite: CADV 150 or PSY 150. This course surveys the developmental changes during the period of emerging adulthood (18-25 years old). Cultural contexts, key changes, continuity and individual differences across both typical and atypical development are examined. The course explores changes in physiology, changes in thinking, changes in social interactions, the context within which these changes take place (emerging adults in family, peer, school and work environments), and the psychosocial areas in which development takes place (autonomy, identity, intimacy, sexuality, achievement). Common psychosocial problems in emerging adulthood are discussed.
