This four-credit course is designed as a meaningful learning experience for active-duty military veterans and dependents, its foundation is based in the belief that the most important thing this population possesses is not only the authenticity of his or her own experience as a participant in the business of national defense, but also, the experiences gained through interactions with diverse populations and cultures within their branches of the military and globally. The key aim of the course is to assist active-duty military, veterans and dependents in accessing a language which will help them articulate that experience verbally and in writing, and in discovering meaning in their military service.

Additionally, this course will be focused on developing the skills, knowledge and abilities that make students successful in higher education. Emphasis will be placed on improving reading, critical thinking, research methods and expository writing skills. The course will also focus on helping veterans make the transition to the non-traditional style of education at Evergreen. 

Please note: This course will meet on campus for seminar sessions, and presentation of final project.
