Leading a Life of Meaning: Liberal Learning & You

Leading a Life of Meaning

In this experiential course, you will explore a fundamental concern: How do I live a life of meaning? Students will read thinkers ranging from Aristotle, Plutarch, and Cicero to Victor Frankl, Toni Morrison, and Wendell Berry—and will bring to bear their own life experiences—to understand concepts of love, friendship, work, community and identity in relation to living an examined life. These studies will be expanded through practical experiences of service work, meditation and film to create a vital SCETL intellectual community.

"I am not someone who is incredibly literate when it comes to Shakespeare so I was initially opposed to it... I did it regardless and I'm so glad that I did! It was the best experience."
