Understanding Who We Are: Development of the Self

Semester: 

Spring

Offered: 

2023

Who are you? And what has made you who you are? This course will examine classic and current theories and research in the development of self-concept, including our identity (e.g., gender, sexual, and social), self-esteem (e.g., body image, popularity, and sense of belonging) and personality. By exploring major developmental milestones and social-cognitive factors related to the development of a self, we will aim to understand how various forces contribute to our self-concept, and how our self-concept intersects with how we understand and navigate the world.
