ISP 147 Life Stories

3 hours 

Our individual life stories are shaped by myriad forces: biological needs; family dynamics; the political, geographical, and socio-economic circumstances in which we find ourselves; historical events; and our own unique quirks, strengths, and failings. By reading memoirs and biographies and writing autobiographical essays of their own, students in this General Education course in the Individual and Society area will explore the ways that these forces interact in human lives.




This course satisfies the Flexible Core: Individual and Society area of the Gen Ed Program.
