Learn about where you come from! Understand the world you live in now by studying the development of our culture and aesthetic values. Why do we think some things are beautiful, and others are ugly? This course broadens the students’ perception of an appreciation for the humanities by exploring the contribution of the arts to the individual and to society. Emphasis is given to modern developments in such areas as the visual, performing, literary, and environmental arts. Concepts basic to a systematic understanding of the humanities in relation to everyday life are examined through a variety of media and aesthetic experiences.
