LAS 341 Contemplation And Action

3 credit hours

This Liberal Arts Core seminar provides students an opportunity to explore and engage in the interplay between meditation, prayer and contemplation on the one hand and creative action, work, and service to family, community, and society on the other. The Dominican tradition, with its challenge “to contemplate and to share with others the fruits of contemplation” provides a starting point for the course. Students will explore Dominican Art, and Dominican social outreach, as well as some other religious traditions in terms of what insight they offer into the fruitful tension between contemplation and action. This course helps students to continue developing skills related to the program’s learning outcomes, especially creativity and religious traditions.

Prerequisite: LAS 241 , except students transferring in with 56 or more credit hours
Course is Offered: FA and WI Every Year
