From the Instructor:
Course Objectives: 1. Use critical thinking to evaluate culturally based assumptions behind art, architecture, literature, music, religion, philosophy, and drama. 2. Identify culturally-grounded practices, values and beliefs and explain how they influenced peoples actions in the past and the extent of their impact today. 3. Articulate an understanding of the humanities; that it involves an analysis of what motivates humans to create, and how their creations reflect their values and world views. 4. Communicate effectively about the defining moments of cultures and civilizations. Looking forward to seeing you in class! Best, Rachelle Woodbury
