1st Yr. Seminar: COMM 131X - Life…Backwards

3 cr.
This first-year seminar course introduces students to the life of the mind through an exploration of…life. Through directed readings, guest speakers and class discussion, students will be called to examine and critically engage with all aspects of life, from birth through death. Following the Kierkegaard suggestion about understanding life, the class will conduct this examination backward. Students will be encouraged to reflect on their own lives (and the lives of others) as they continue the journey to discover who, as the Jesuits would say, they are meant to be.
