EN26 Humanities/Composition

1.0 Credit  
This course examines the basic nature of humanity through the study of art, literature, music, drama, and philosophy. Through this examination of the fine arts, students will develop a better under-standing of man’s desires, hopes and motivations. Compositions are required, covering ancient cultures through the twentieth century. While students become familiar with the masterpieces through classroom experience and guest speakers, the emphasis is on continual, sustained reading and writing. [Board Adopted 1998]
