Undergraduate students who enter UF in or after Summer B 2020 are required to take one UF Quest 1 course to complete three credits of the general education requirement in the Humanities except if they have an A.A. from a Florida public college/state university or are in the Innovation Academy program. Some Quest 1 courses may also be used to satisfy three credits of the Diversity or International requirement and/or count toward the Writing requirement.
Unlike typical first-year offerings, Quest 1 courses extend beyond any one discipline. They are not a survey of or an introduction to a field. Instead, they invite students to ask essential questions about the human condition that are not easy to answer but difficult to ignore. What makes life worth living? What makes a society a fair one? How do we manage conflicts? Who are we in relation to other people or to the natural world?
