Dream Interpretation for Personal Growth


What is the course about?

GDAR1877/GDSS1877 seeks to broaden and deepen students’ understanding of what it means to experience personal growth toward the goal of becoming a “whole person”. We will examine various psychological, philosophical, and scientific theories regarding personal growth in general, with special focus on the nature and possible meanings of dreams. Students will learn to recall, record, and interpret their own dreams while completing a ten week “dream diary” project. The semester will conclude with several weeks when students will be encouraged to appreciate how evil, love, religion, and the meaning of life, are reflected in human dreams.
