BIOL 003 - Finding Well-being and Ways Forward Through Adversity

HC NSMA
2 credits
Major adversity can bring focus to the question of what truly matters and suggest answers that clarify ways forward through challenges great and small.  The question and answers will be explored in the seminar through lenses of biology, social sciences, and humanities.  The seminar will study (i) biological perspectives on beneficial and deleterious ways our body responds to stress, (ii) social scientific insights on determinants of happiness and well-being, and (iii) lessons on living well from the humanities.
Prerequisites & Notes: Prefererence for students intending non-science majors.
