Division VI - Foundations of Visual and Performing Arts

Students take a minimum of three credits from this division. Students completing these courses will be able to identify the forms of artistic expression (e.g., forms of music, dance, painting, sculpture, etc.) in relation to a historical and cultural context; they will also be able to recognize and articulate the reasons why these forms of artistic expression developed and evolved in the manner they did. Further, students will be able to demonstrate and articulate an understanding of the principles behind the evolution of judgment and taste. All courses are four credits unless otherwise noted.
