Arts, Cultures, and Ideas – HUMN-107 (3 credits)
This is an interdisciplinary course that introduces students to how the humanities and their arts address ways of thinking about creativity and the human experience. Students approach cultural achievements as rooted in their historical settings, showing how the political, social, and economic events of each period influence their creation. The course will focus on at least three of the following areas of the humanities appropriate to the period of history and the specific culture being studied: architecture, criticism, dance, ethics, film, literature, music, painting, philosophy, photography, religion, sculpture, and theater. Historical periods and individual cultures to be studied within these periods will be determined among various sections each semester.
