UNCP 5550 Capstone: Building A Life (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This course explores the middle ground between thinking we can construct our lives without limits and that we have no real options. We will look at life as "constructing" the future. Lives are not created "ex nihilo" but built in the context of the places in which we live and have lived, built on the foundations that we have already laid, constructed by us in and through our interactions with the world around us. Building on the past, they are our place in the world, situating us in the present and orienting us toward the future.
