Through this course, we aim to create a safe space and community where students can learn about empathy, connect with others, and practice self-care. Class time will focus on discussion and activities, and homework will be multidisciplinary and alternative. Students will be asked to keep a journal for the class throughout the semester, and weekly virtual dyads (one-on-one meet-ups between students) will be required. Classes will focus on topics such as the basics of empathy, empathy and food, empathy and mental health, empathy through poetry, and the science of empathy.
This class is heavily focused on the individual. Attendance is mandatory, and class will be synchronous, so please, if you apply, you must make the commitment to attend every class. You can choose to take 1 or 2 units.
This class is for everyone—whether you already feel comfortable with empathy and want to learn more, or have never explicitly thought about it. Either way, we want to hear from you!
No day(s) left until application deadline!
