SSC-1050 FYS: A Call to Action

3 credits

Prerequisite: Open to freshmen only

The purpose of this course is to explore young adult developmental and psychological change through characters in literature. Using their experiences and stories, we will examine the central forces in adult identity development including separation and affiliation, religion and spirituality, intimacy and sexuality, culture, work, and family. Students will be encouraged to examine their own developmental challenges and opportunities by observing parallel psychological processes in literary characters. This is a first-year seminar course and meets the First-Year Seminar requirement of the GECC.
