PAID 450: Here on Earth: Vocation in a Global Sustainable Community

This course explores texts, including films, that reveal the interdependence between people and communities as we strive to nurture well-being on our planet Earth. Discussion will be framed by the concept of vocation and will draw on the experiences of local individuals who are committed to some form of social sustainability in their life's work. This exploration will lead to the question, "How can educated, morally serious people discern their roles in a global community?"
