PACS 001. What is a Good Society. 4 Units.

Pacific Seminar 1 (PACS 1) introduces students to the intellectual life of the university by exploring the intersection of who we are as individuals and who we are as communities. The course engages the critical tension between individual rights and social responsibilities as that tension manifests in issues such as identity, equality, and sustainability, among others. PACS 1 is a shared intellectual experience, incorporating materials from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Students meet in small sections to discuss the readings and issues and develop their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. PACS 1 develops skills students will need to succeed in any field of study at the University and beyond. The course represents an introduction to general education in the best sense of the term: education for self-examination and engaged citizenship. Such grounding will help students develop the agency and flexibility necessary to navigate a rapidly changing political, social, and economic environment. PACS 1 fulfills the University’s College Level Writing Requirement. It requires 6,000-7,000 words of edited composition. Students entering Pacific as freshmen must pass PACS 001 and PACS 002. There are no substitutions. The Pacific Seminars cannot be repeated if students earn a "D" or higher.
