Taking Charge of Your Health: Tools and Supports to Navigate the Healthcare Maze – Instructor: Maria Giannotti
Our healthcare system has become so complex that even those who work in it every day often struggle to navigate it. So for members of the public – who in a time of crisis find themselves trying to navigate the maze – it can be hopelessly confusing and frustrating. Having the right information and services at the right time helps you achieve your best health. Learn how to access programs and resources, know your rights, and advocate for your needs.
Science and Christianity: Certainty vs. Faith or Belief vs. Assurance? – Instructor: Fr. Don Lococo, CSB.
Modern media conditions us to believe that science provides truths that we can rely upon absolutely. Reporting gives the impression that scientific truth is certain. Even if true, our certainty is based upon believing the media. Only a fool would do that absolutely. Religion, however is as old as civilization itself, presenting us with truths that we are sure are certain because we believe that God revealed them. Which belief system is more certain? Should we be so sure? This short course investigates this theme considering the topics of human development, evolution, the environment, and death and resurrection. It will provide a critical basis to judge the so-called certainty truths that daily barrage our senses.
Three Religions One Ethic – Instructor: Dr. John Cappucci
This comparative course explores the ethical systems in three of the world’s major religions, namely Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In the course, students will explore how each religion approaches various public and private ethical issues in a similar fashion.
