Are you looking another class this semester?  Do you need an AUC-S class to fulfill your requirements? Do you have free time Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:25-11:50?

AUC-S: The Adult Journey: A Search for Meaning, a 7 week class starts on October 19. This integrative course in the social sciences is an exploration of the events that shape the meaning of life at three critical stages: young adulthood, middle age, and old age. Emphasis is given to interactional issues, cultural values, and theories of development that constitute the adult journey. Class readings and activities are designed to promote critical thinking, oral and written communications, and self-reflection. Attention will be given to helping students understand and learn how to take action to understand and enhance their own adult journey. 

  • Students will gain an understanding of the theories related to and key stages of adult development and how these various life stages are experienced by a variety of peoplethrough lectures, class discussions, and real-world observation exercises.
  • Students will gain an awareness of their own skills, strengths, values, motivators, behaviors, interests, and mindsetthrough self-assessments.
  • Students will gain an understanding and appreciation of their own life journey: past, present and future through reflection and action activities including the writing of an ethical will/legacy letter.
  • Students will gain enhanced oral communications skillsthrough class activities and presentations.

If you are having trouble registering for this class, please plan to attend the first class on October 19 (9:25 - 11:50). I will be happy to sign the form for you to be able to add this class.  For more information, please contact Amy Barzach at barzach@hartford.edu.
