STGE 1035 Special Topics in General Education ? Humanities and Social Sciences, Selfhood

3 hours; 3 credits

Examines individualized human existence, in itself and in relation to the collective, through a variety of methodologies, viewing our world through many lenses to help students interpret and think critically about being human. The humanities employ mainly qualitative approaches to literary works, religious and philosophical conceptions, and historical records of peoples and regions of the world. The social sciences engage in the systematic study of power, at the level of personal interactions, the state, and society, using both qualitative and quantitative methods. These ?ways of knowing? intersect and overlap, encouraging students to analyze the range of creativity, cultural expressions, modes of power, and patterns in human existence.
