GPHD6206: Transpersonal Finance

Credits 3
This course explores resource management from two angles: personal and philosophic. Given that spending and saving habits reflect true priorities, students will be asked to track their money behaviors as a means to gain greater alignment with their values. Students will also be required to imagine their post-graduate income opportunities and develop a sustainable plan to meet lifestyle obligations and goals. Philosophically, the course will investigate the metaphysical meaning of money, examine the United States’ wealth paradigm, and explore alternative perspectives. Students will be asked to examine their personal wealth worldviews and reveal how these are culturally supported or negated. The course will uncover the relationship between ecology and the economy with the ultimate goal of facilitating financial awareness and empowering students to take charge of their lives.
