Journeys is a one-semester, common course required of all first-year students entering Hendrix College. It is grounded in the College’s motto, which (from Ephesians 4:13) may be translated as “toward a fulfilled person.” The motto thus implies trajectory, a sense of movement or development, from one state of being or one way of living to another. It implies, in short, the notion of journey. This course takes the concept of journey as its touchstone and explores how different cultures and different peoples have made sense of their own life journeys.
