Among the requirements in this seminar is the completion of 120 hours of field experience at a site prearranged in consultation with the internship coordinator in Academic and Career Advising. The seminar provides students the context to reflect on concrete experiences at the site and link them to study in their disciplines as well as the political, psychological, social, economic and intellectual forces that shape views on work and its meaning. The aim is to integrate the liberal arts with issues and themes surrounding the pursuit of a good and productive life. In certain pre-approved instances, an individualized learning plan with a faculty sponsor may substitute for the seminar.
Prerequisites: Junior or senior standing, 2.5 GPA, ability to complete 120 hours at internship site, approval of the CES internship coordinator, and completion of learning agreement.
