Courage (also called bravery or valour) is the choice and willingness to confront pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation.
In the past, notable thoughts on courage have come from philosophers such as Plato, Aristotle and Tao Te Ching. More recently, courage has been explored by the discipline of psychology.
This module looks at what courage looks like for students, provides the opportunity for exploring acts of courage, class discussion on what a courageous decision might be, and personal reflection on how students can observe courage in others.
