Identity – The Search for Meaning

Students who have experience exploring their own identity outside of an academic setting may submit an brief essay explaining the experience to justify not taking additional coursework in the Identity category so that they may instead focus on categories they would like to strengthen.  There are several ways in which people might have explored their own identity.  For example,  psychotherapy and meditation are explicitly activities that explore identity.
