1 ARTS IN WESTERN CULTURE PART 1: ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS TO RENAISSANCE Humanities 201 Section 004 TTH 2:30-4:55 Room 306 BYU SL Center Instructor: Diane S. Cales Phone: (801) 307-5296, (801) 797-9572 Email: [email protected] Required Texts: Culture and Values 7E (7th edition) Cunningham-Reich (CV) Norton Anthology of Western Literature , 8th Edition, Volume I (WL) Humanities 201 CD (in class) Evaluation: 3 Writing Assignments 30 % 1 Midterm exam 25 Final exam 30 Quizzes 10 Attendance/participation 5 100 % Grading schedule: 94-100 A 80-82 B- 67-69 D+ 90-93 A- 77-79 C+ 63-66 D 87-89 B+ 73-76 C 60-62 D- 83-86 B 70-72 C- 0-59 F The term Humanities refers to the study of human intellectual and artistic creativity and the record of human experience as seen in the arts and letters. The study of Humanities is, therefore, interdisciplinary, drawing from literature, foreign languages, history, philosophy, visual art, and music, as well as a discipline in its own right with a methodology for the study of cultural and intellectual history and, to a lesser extent, aesthetics. The Humanities undergraduate curriculum emphasizes the development of skills in reasoning, critical thinking, language, writing, and library use but serves students who seek more latitude than single-discipline programs offer in developing a broad and full program in the liberal arts that is not confined to one art form or national tradition. The curriculum approaches questions of human values and expression important to all cultures - the nature of the beautiful, the meaning of human existence, the search for the divine, the nature of historical epochs, etc. - through comparative studies. A study of the Humanities prepares the student for further graduate work in the humanistic disciplines and in professional schools, for teaching in public and private schools, or for employment in business, government, technology, tourism, and civil or foreign service. Humanities Section Learning Objectives for HUM 201/202 Develop a solid understanding of the course of Western cultural and intellectual history and the ideas that have been formative and fundamental to the history of civilization. Recall and describe the basic form and content of each work on the syllabus. Improve your ability to think critically; that is, draw reasonable conclusions from your study of these works about which concerns, ideas, values, etc., are important to the person who created the work, the culture in which the work was created, and to our own contemporary culture.
