 Current Events

Framed by the week’s trending news, this course relies on rigorous, yet respectful, debate to enhance our understanding of divergent viewpoints in the reporting of current events.  Discussions address politics, sex, religion and their place in contemporary culture – issues that give life depth and meaning.  We focus on developing critical reasoning skills by examining the pre-conceived biases that affect our personal objectivity.
