Why Take This Course?

This short summer course is aimed at Hoyas in their 20s, who are approaching what some have called the “quarter-life crisis” – the pivotal period during which they need to figure out what they want to do with their lives, and to design their future path in pursuit of meaning and purpose. Nick Lovegrove will draw upon his own professional experience, his recently published book The Mosaic Principle, and other recently published research, to lead a process of self-discovery and peer mentoring over four sequential modules.

Those who take the course will enhance their own self-awareness about what really motivates them, strengthen their ability to make critical choices and trade-offs, and chart a course towards what Nick calls a remarkable life and career. With practical exercises and tools, this course is for anyone who wants to avoid career traps, pursue work that matters, and achieve their fullest personal aspirations.
