Abstract
Arnett’s research on Emerging Adulthood describes many college students as feeling “in-between” adolescence and adulthood. A common consequence is their postponement of decisions and commitments. The role of uncertainty and doubt in this new developmental trend is examined along with implications for supporting students’ career preparation, identity exploration and critical thinking.
