Introduction to Humanities
Humanities is the study of human culture. For this reason this course is very broad in scope and covers poetry, prose, art history, philosophy, music, theater, architecture, film, and dance. This course will provide the student with the broad frameworks, within which, enduring questions of existence, relationships, values, and aesthetics can be examined. The students must demonstrate their knowledge of facts (names, works); understand and interpret literary passages and art works; recognize medium, style, writer’s characteristics and other techniques. Students must show their understanding of humanities by interpreting works of art, recalling specific information, and applying concepts. Concepts from the disciplines studied in this course are going to be integrated with contemporary American culture.
