General Education Breadth Courses
 
GEF Strand 1 Persons, Interpretations, Perspectives
  • Focus on human persons as individuals;
  • Aim at generating new understandings and interpretations, often of a personal or narrative nature, rather than the impersonal accumulation of factual and theoretical knowledge;
  • Use more particularistic and more accessible methods, such as literary analysis and criticism, case studies, semantics and conceptual analysis relating to specific individuals, events and situations;
  • Are more concerned with specifics (individuality) than patterns or generality;
  • Embrace issues to do with values and evaluation;
  • Examples of “Strand 1 disciplines”: language and literature, history, media studies, philosophy, ethics, aesthetics, fine arts, music and drama.
