audit for $375
Auditing means you are not required to complete assignments and the professor will not be reviewing your work. We strongly recommend full participation for maximum value.
Following the completion of the course, the student will be able to:
- Articulate significant concepts such as “culture,” “art,” and “aesthetics.”
- Identify various postures that Christians have historically maintained with respect to art and culture.
- Distinguish various artistic expressions and evaluate their impact upon cultural traditions.
- Articulate and integrate biblical, historical, philosophical, and theological approaches to art.
- Discern the idolatrous from the created and cultural good.
- Interpret and respond to mainstream arts through the discerning eyes of a faithful community.
- Recognize and affirm the Christian vocation of culture-making, particularly with respect to art.
Students will explore culture as a way of life and how the arts impact and promote culture as well as how culture influences the arts.
