Description

This course will explore what it means to be human, and to become humane, by drawing from a variety of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. It will provide an intellectual framework for understanding interconnections between the personal and the group on both a local and global level in relation to social, cultural, economic, and ecological issues. This course gives attention to an increasing awareness of the challenges associated with intercultural relations, fostering respect for diversity, and the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion.

Prerequisite(s): 18 credit units at university level or permission of the instructor.
