      Jephias Chimunhu
Abstract: This study investigated first year first semester Psychology students’(2013) perceptions of the relevance of identity related domains at Great Zimbabwe University (Poly campus , Masvingo) (N=350). For this purpose a structured questionnaire consisting of 14 domain specific items was adapted from earlier studies by Alberts, Mbalo and Ackerman studies (2003). The study replicates Chimunhu (2011) study at University of Fort Hare. Most of the domains were regarded as overwhelmingly relevant by the respondents. My career was highly regarded at 93% “Very important” by the respondents whilst Friendship with members of the opposite sex was regarded of least importance by 47 % of the respondents. Gender and age variables are likely to affect Adolescents differently at different phases in this stage of identity development.
