Aesthetic Inquiry (AI-L; AI-A)

Requirement: two courses (one from literature, one from the arts)

The two-course requirement in this domain consists of courses that expose students to original works produced by writers, visual artists and musicians, and provides an opportunity to interpret, evaluate, analyze and understand these products of the creative imagination. Using the language, concepts, and criteria of the respective aesthetic disciplines, courses in American, British, world and foreign language literature as well as historical surveys of art, music, theater and performance/studio courses will explore the relationship between aesthetic works and their historical and cultural contexts.
