Description
This course is a cluster of distinct courses (topics may vary semester to semester) with shared goals and learning outcomes.

Courses focus on issues of lasting value and current relevance for students, and address questions such as “Who am I?” “What do citizenship and civic responsibility mean?” “How do I know what is true?” and “What is a good life?”
