The Arts

Works of art - painting, sculpture, architecture, music, theater, dance, literature - are among the most significant representations of the cultures that produce them. Through the integration of intuitive and intellectual responses, students gain a sensitivity to the expressiveness of the Arts.  Core Arts courses also suggest the wider implications of art in historical and social contexts.
