CSPH3211: Living on Purpose: An Exploration of Self, Purpose, and Community

2 CreditsField StudyOnline Available

Exploring our purpose in life means asking and answering the essential question, “What makes me want to get out of bed in the morning?” Purpose is that deepest belief within us where we have a strong sense of who we are, where we came from, and where we’re going. It is the ability to know yourself, know what you know, to reflect on it, and base your judgments, choices and actions on it. Living on Purpose is a course designed to help students explore questions of meaning and purpose in college and in their lives. In this class, students will examine the context and meaning of their own lives, explore other people’s ways of living on purpose, and consider the big questions that shape their present and future. Through three retreats, readings, reflections, experiential exercises, and assignments, the course will offer students time to define their own purpose at this time in their lives and to help build a framework to lead a purposeful life now and into the future. prereq sophomore, junior or senior undergraduates (30+ credits) or instructor consent
