GEN 311 - Core II: Ideas of Human Nature

Semester Hours: 3
No question is more human than this: “What does it mean to be human?” And few questions have received a wider variety of conflicting and competing answers. This course looks at the topic of human nature through the lenses of various traditions and academic disciplines—including philosophy, sociology, the arts, evolutionary biology, economics, computer science, and psychology. Students are required to test these theories against contemporary issues, as well as their own knowledge and experience. In the process, they learn to question and to support claims about the central facts of the human condition.

Pre-requisites: GEN 130 - Core I: Foundations of Critical Thinking , sophomore standing or above, and GEN 112 - Composition II: Argumentation and Research .
