Autobiography and Professional Choice
COL 113
Spring 2007 not offered

The purpose of this course is to make students reflect upon the decisions, unconscious as well as conscious, that are involved in career choices. It is intended to assist the process of determining professional and vocational options, as well as to encourage greater reflection in all matters; to promote the awareness that no decision need be automatic or imposed; and that decisions appearing to have those qualities are not by virtue of that rendered value-free. To achieve these ends we shall read books and essays by persons (mostly contemporary, or nearly so) representing as wide a range of professional fields as possible. All readings will be autobiographical. Students will write a short (1-page) paper on each weekly reading assignment, and papers will be distributed to be read by the entire class to furnish a major constituent of the material for class discussion.
