Explain how key social, cultural, and artistic contributions contribute to historical changes. 2. Explain the importance of situating a society’s cultural and artistic expressions within a historical context. 3. Examine the influences of intellectual, religious, political, and socio-economic forces on social, cultural, and artistic expressions.

Advice for students:
If your interested in surveying the arts, literature, belief systems, and major events in the development of cultures around the globe from the European Renaissance to the contemporary period then this class is for you.
