Inquiry in the Arts [ARTS]: Course List

About ARTS Courses

Creative expression is a fundamental human activity that results in the production of objects, environments, and experiences that engage the senses, emotions, and/or intellect. The creative and professional arts offer direct participation in such activities while providing a framework for their interpretation, evaluation, and appreciation. In this category the domain of the arts is broadly defined to include not only the fine arts and performing arts, but also the professional arts, such as architecture, graphic design, and digital arts. Some ARTS courses ask students to perform, produce, fabricate or generate an aesthetic object, installation, presentation, composition, performance, or other creative work. Other ARTS courses ask students to critically analyze, interpret, or evaluate the creative activities or accomplishments of others, past or present. In both types of courses, students also demonstrate that their creative or interpretive analysis is grounded in existing historical, critical, or methodological scholarship.
