SMC 4301: Capstone Seminar
This course serves as a capstone for the St. Mary’s Core, which is central to the mission and identity of St. Mary’s University. It provides students with an opportunity to reflect upon and integrate what they have learned in the core courses they have taken, the courses they have taken for their major, and other things they have learned during their time at St. Mary’s. It also encourages students to develop a sense of vocation, so they can graduate and enter the next stage of their lives deliberately and purposefully. Finally, it highlights the relation between education, vocation, and the common good, to help students understand their vocation in the context of flourishing local, national, and global communities.
Readings will include selections from Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, Luther, Kant, Fichte, Weber, Rawls, and Nussbaum.
