This course is designed as an introduction to the creative arts. In covering a broad range of creative arts, from visual art to music to cinema to drama, we will both uncover the profound connections between disparate creative forms and familiarize ourselves with the principal properties and characteristics unique to each. As we go through the process of understanding the arts as products of their historical and cultural moments, we will also reveal the equally profound connection between the politics and poetics of creative forms. In view of this, some of the key questions to which we shall repeatedly address our work and conversations are:

  1. What is art?
  2. What is culture?
  3. How are values embedded in culture?

Honors English Courses

ENGL 2010H, Intermediate Writing for Honors (CL2)*

This class will focus on research and persuasive writing, using library and internet research, and appropriate documentation. Students will evaluate sources, collaborate with classmates, and participate in peer review of each other's writing. Writing assignments will be augmented by topical and provocative readings. Students will be expected to participate in class discussions and to think carefully about the reading and writing assignments.
This is not a passive class! Students will write several papers related to their research interests. Through this class, students should develop their own writing style and voice, and learn to integrate that voice with what others (often authorities) have to say about the subject. It is hoped that students will leave the class stronger readers, writers, and thinkers, with a good idea of the areas on which they can build in the future.

*Prerequisite: Completion of ENGL 1010 or AP score of 3 or ACT score of 29.
