The Art and Culture of Denmark – FINE-101 (3 credits)
The student will approach the humanities through an interdisciplinary study of nine major art forms: film, theatre, music, dance, painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, and art in literature. Each of these art forms is considered from the perspectives of the meaning and form expressed. As part of the creative process, a broad range of the various arts will be explored in this study abroad experience. The challenge to the student in this course is to develop perceptual awareness and aesthetic sensitivity as well as a foundation for a life-long relationship with the arts regardless of his or her field of study.
