Identity: The Reflected Self

In the "Identity: The Reflected Self" thread, students will explore how a variety of academic disciplines analyze and understand human identity in order to answer the age-old questions, "Who Am I? Who are you? Who are they? Who are we?" Students will investigate not only the construction of personal identity, but also how personal identities are constituted within social, political, cultural, and religious contexts. Students completing the thread will cultivate a better understanding of their own identities and the identities of others.

This thread can be 9 or 18 hours.
Students must take courses from at least two course levels: 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000.
Courses in a 9-hour thread must be from a minimum of two disciplines. Courses in an 18-hour thread must be from a minimum of four disciplines, with no more than nine credits from any one discipline.
