Creative expression, whether for personal expression or to communicate with others, 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 and provides a framework for their interpretation, evaluation, and appreciation, past and present. 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. Students choose one ARTS course (3 credits) to satisfy part of the UCORE Inquiry: Ways of Knowing graduation requirements. Three 1-credit courses may be added together to satisfy the 3-credit requirement.
