EDUC 603 - The College Student: Developmental Themes and Social Contexts

(3). Prerequisite(s): Admission to a graduate program or permission of the instructor.

This course examines the college student experience from the life-span developmental sociological and cultural perspectives. Students examine and compare major theories and empirical findings in the areas of college student development, the college environment, and the needs and characteristics of various subgroups within the college population. While the primary focus is on the traditional college age group (18-23), the course also addresses the characteristics and needs of older students.
