FYS 143 - Philosophy of Nonviolence

The purpose of this class is twofold: 1) to introduce students to the academic model used at CSUMB, and, 2) to introduce students to the theory, philosophy, and practice of nonviolence and how that strategy has brought about significant cultural change from South Africa in the early 20th century to Egypt in the 21st Century. Through an examination of the Core Values, Vision Statement, Academic Goals, Major Fields, and potential career pathways, students create an academic plan for the first two years of study. Students also learn about the philosophy, principles, and methods of nonviolence to see how that practice has brought about social change for millions of persecuted, oppressed, and marginalized people in various cultural and global settings throughout the world.
