ADOL 480 - Adolescent Development and Youth Culture in School & Community


This course is designed to explore the concept of adolescence and how youth culture plays a part in how we construct a definition for the transition from child to adult in schools and communities. Growth through adolescence is seen as an integral part of life-span development within our culture. The implication here is that biological, socio-economic, psychosocial and cultural forces act to shape our concept of what it means to be adolescent in present day American Culture. As such, cultural norms and community values, and their interpretations, together with physiological and psychosocial forces, largely form what culture values as being adolescent. This course examines these forces, from a range of perspectives, in order to construct an understanding of what it means to be an adolescent in today’s world. Prereq: SPF 204, ADOL 410, LST 301, DEPT 457. Can precede the Professional Semester with approval of the Program Director. Cross-listed with CYD 302
