Arts Core

The Arts Core offers students many ways to explore a wide variety of art forms. Some of the Arts Core classes ask students to look and listen; others ask them to enact or recite; some function like conventional seminars, others are more like experimental laboratories. Irrespective of their form or content, all of the Arts Core classes challenge students to think in creative and original ways, forming meaningful and inventive interpretations in dialogue with others. Each course is designed to appeal to a broad cross-section of students and although each course represents a particular field, no specialized knowledge is expected of students who enroll. What they do expect, is a willingness to explore – be it a longstanding fascination or a newfound interest, in whatever medium, from whatever era.
