MHE 621 Transition to Adulthood in the Context of College and Culture

College attendance is a powerful and complex life event associated with the transition to adulthood. In this course we will focus on the way college provides a context which facilitates the learning and development of students. We will start with an overview of relevant theories of human development and their application to the college experience. We will then explore the inter-related domains of cognitive and psychosocial development and examine how college experiences can facilitate more complex ways of understanding the world and the self. Throughout we will emphasize the way differences of race, ethnicity, nationality, class, gender, age, sexual orientation, ability, and religious belief can influence development during the college years.
