Perspectives on the Individual 

Fairleigh Dickinson University requires all students to complete a common University Core curriculum consisting of four integrated courses with a strong emphasis on the liberal arts. The core courses are interdisciplinary, and are taught by faculty from a variety of academic disciplines.

The first of these is CORE 1001 Perspectives on the Individual. The principal purpose of this course is to examine the idea (and the ideal) of the individual from a variety of perspectives. Other objectives are: to learn to think about problems in an interdisciplinary way; to improve writing skills; to broaden our acquaintance with significant literature; to practice the ability to think critically; and to appreciate the many available resources which bear on critical issues.

Dr. Boyer will next be teaching "Core 1" in the Spring 2000 semster.
