Ego and Moral Development in University Contexts:The Value Consistency Thesis Extended

Abstract

The Value Consistency Thesis (VCT) proposed and empirically tested by Levine, Jakubowski, and Côté predicts associations between ego and moral functioning by identifying humanistic value orientations common to dimensions of both domains. With hypotheses based on Erikson’s notion of institutionalized moratorium, the present 2-year longitudinal study of 58 undergraduate students investigates the VCT as a function of participation within humanistic and technological university faculties. The findings replicate the initial test of the VCT and indicate that both ego and moral development and the ability to coordinate these developmental domains are gains more likely for students enrolled in humanistic faculties.
