Turning to One Another: Beliefs and Behaviors

Discussion: Tu 4:00 – 5:15 p.m.
Location: Sherman Hall 108

This course explores the scientific, aesthetic, and ethical dimensions of thought and behavior. This course is oriented toward that exploration of questions that are both personal and global in their orientation. For example: What is my faith in the future? What do I believe about others? What is the relationship I want with the earth? When and where do I experience sacred? There will be opportunities for conversation to occur around topics such as these; literally a “turning to one another” in order to expand and inform our understanding of how our beliefs and behaviors have the power to transform.

Have you thought of taking a First-Year Seminar?
Each of the courses in the First-Year Seminar (FYS) program is unique in its own way, but what is shared is the:
- small cohort experience. You, along with your faculty member and class participants, study a topic in a dynamic, small-group environment.
- focus on learning by sharing knowledge and experience through writing, discussions, and presentations…key skills your faculty and employers require.
- connection with faculty that can only happen in smaller classroom settings. They will get to know you well and can recommend you for all kinds of opportunities.
