Objectives. Determination of dynamics of correlation of territorial self-determination of the person with coping and value-semantic mechanisms of regulation of social behavior in students. Background. In social-psychological studies of migration, the concept of territorial self-determination is practically not used, although it may be productive for systematizing existing research in the field of social psychology of migration, social psychology of personality and development, and setting new hypotheses. The article deals with the problem of territorial self-determination at different stages of personal development. Study design. We studied the difference between the correlation of migration intentions and attitudes with life orientations and coping in students of 1st and 5th years: we used the R-Spearman rank correlation coefficient, the U-Mann-Whitney criterion, and the φ*-Fisher angular transformation criterion. Participants. 59 first-year students and 87 fifth-year students of North-Eastern state University (Magadan), a total of 146 people. Measurements. Questionnaire for studying migration intentions, author’s scale of migration attitudes, test of life orientations by D.A. Leontiev, questionnaire of coping with stress COPE in adaptation by T.O. Gordeeva, etc. Results. It is established that as the University studies, the place of migration intentions and attitudes changes in the system of regulators of social behavior of the person. For first-year students, the correlation of migration intentions and attitudes with life orientations are more typical; they act as dispositions of the highest level, on the scale of the life path. Fifth-year students are more likely to associate migration intentions and attitudes with coping strategies, and they become regulators of behavior on the scale of activities. Conclusions. Migration intentions and attitudes can act as regulators of social behavior of a person at different levels, depending on the scale of the individual’s activity at this stage of its development and depending on the tasks solved by the person.

Keywords: territorial self-determination, territorial identity, mechanisms for the regulation of social behavior, migration intentions, migration attitudes, coping strategies, meaningful orientations
