INTD 110J - The Jesuit Magis

3 cr.
For nearly 500 years, the Society of Jesus has been committed to pursuing the magis, a restless desire for excellence grounded in gratitude.  Among other things, this course will explore the foundation of this concept in the life of Ignatius of Loyola and his spirituality.  We will consider what role the magis has played in the span of Jesuit history, with particular focus on its implications for Jesuit education.  Finally, we will ask what it means to be women and men of the magis – the shared call of each member of this University community, especially students in SJLA.
