    Arts and Humanities General Education: Studying Human Expression

    Arts and Humanities (A&H) courses offer you the opportunity to investigate the many ways in which human beings express themselves. You will study ways of interpreting meaning in those expressions and learn more about who you are and how to express yourself effectively by joining in an ongoing conversation about ideas.

    What you will do in Arts and Humanities Gen Ed courses:

    --Thinking rationally and critically

    --Constructing clear arguments

    --Evaluating other points of view

    --Analyzing how ideas and emotions are conveyed in literature, visual art, music, and drama

    --Grappling with moral and ethical issues

    --Creating your own works of artistic expression

    The General Education Bulletin explains more about what Arts and Humanities courses can help you do.

Requirement: At least 2 courses for at least 6 credit hours
