Fiero Course Description Introduction to the Humanities focuses on the study and appreciation of representative examples of visual and performing arts, literature, music and religion of various world cultures. The exploration of interrelationships of the arts and their philosophies emphasizes the nature of humankind and the need to create. Along the way, we will explore human values, attitudes, and ideas by examining the history and nature of human creative expression from a variety of time periods, art forms, creators and cultural traditions. We will also investigate the interrelationships of cultural history, spiritual traditions, philosophy, literature, and the visual and performing arts using text readings, occasional Internet research, comments posted to an online discussion forum, and both critical and creative projects. Expected Learning Outcomes Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following: 1. Analyze primary works in the arts and humanities in terms of how they contribute to the meaning of human experience. 2. Demonstrate knowledge of the skills involved in creating art and performance. 3. Identify aesthetic principles of the arts and humanities. 4. Select and use the vocabulary of the humanities at an appropriate intellectual level. 5. Identify works in the arts and humanities within a historical framework.
