Individuals are emerging into adulthood without understanding basic life skills such as paying bills, cooking, eating healthy, planning a budget, problem-solving, and conflict resolution. At Texas Tech University, educators in the Family and Consumer Sciences Education program have created a course entitled “Adulting 101: Real Skills for Real Life” to address the lack of life skills in students during their college years. With a critical science-based perspective, this course teaches students the skills needed for personal development, health and wellness, citizenship, communication, consumer choices, employability, parenting and childcare, and balancing work and family.
