Spring, 2018

Who am I? And what am I called to do at this time, in this place, and among these people who live in the world around me? 

This two credit*, integrative seminar explores issues of identity, community, and vocation, drawing upon philosophical, sociological and theological sources. Students will design personally tailored research plans for exploring their gifts and sense of calling and then complete their plans alongside their progress through course readings and lectures.
