The Examined Life

A Guide to Discovering Your Identity and Calling

Course Description

This seminar will be an introduction to self-exploration and identity development, and how to best discover what it means to live a life of meaning and purpose.

Students will be asked to consider formational questions to guide their path: Who am I? What am I good at? Who am I called to become?

The readings, discussions, and reflections will investigate personal and social development in the college years. Topics will include the nature of learning, diversity, social justice, human sexuality, relationships, and vocational discernment in the context of our lives.

The class materials and strategies will be designed to be provocative and practical as well as intellectually and conversationally stimulating.
