The course discusses love from both a personal and societal perspective. Students are encouraged to examine how love operates in their own lives through personal self-assessment, by applying text recommendations to personal needs and goals, and by sharing issues and ideas in a lecture class setting or in an online discussion forum. During the course, students are expected to be able to understand and apply relational principles to real life situations.
