Mindfulness practices reduce the negative effects of stress and improve focus and awareness in order to help one live a more meaningful life. This course explores the neuroscience and physiology of Mindfulness Meditation. Through weekly experientials students cultivate a personal practice for effective stress management, resilience and reflections rooted in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction techniques.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
