  • Goal 6: The Humanities and Fine Arts

    Goal:

    To expand students' knowledge of the human condition and human cultures, especially in relation to behavior, ideas, and values expressed in works of human imagination and thought. Through study in disciplines such as literature, philosophy, and the fine arts, students will engage in critical analysis, form aesthetic judgments, and develop an appreciation of the arts and humanities as fundamental to the health and survival of any society. Students should have experiences in both the arts and humanities.

    Students will be able to:

    • Demonstrate awareness of the scope and variety of works in the arts and humanities.
    • Understand those works as expressions of individual and human values within a historical and social context.
    • Respond critically to works in the arts and humanities.
    • Engage in the creative process or interpretive performance.
    • Articulate an informed personal reaction to works in the arts and humanities.
