Fine Arts (3 Crs.)
- To present, critique or analyze human values, beliefs and emotions as they are conceptualized, formulated, and expressed through verbal, aural and physical action and artifacts and perceived through the senses; and
- To attend and react to a performance or exhibit related to the discipline studied.
Additionally, fine arts courses must demonstrate at least one of the following goals:
- To compare and contrast the artistic expression of different cultural groups (where culture is defined broadly to include issues such as gender, ethnicity, racial diversity, religious belief, lifespan, etc.); and/or
- To recognize how values, ethics or social norms impact artistic expression; and/or
- To apply the tools of critical thinking to the fine arts (for example, compare opposing critiques of a work of art and ask probing questions about the sources of any difference of opinion).
