Semester Hours: Theory 3
Organized as a seminar in cultural history, this course develops responses to representative works of literature, history, philosophy, music and a wide
range of visual and performing arts. Students analyze and evaluate creative works in areas such as painting, poetry, drama, dance, film and architecture. They discover the personal significance of these forms and connections among works, genres, styles and movements. Discussions, essays, oral presentations and visits to cultural venues prepare students for more advanced inquiry in subsequent courses.
