The Arts—Six Credits

Studies within the Arts help students develop an understanding of how the arts express, enrich and ennoble the human spirit. Students will come to appreciate how the arts provide a unique way of knowing, bringing us face to face with ourselves, and with what we sense lies beyond. Students will enlarge their capacity for delight and will participate in the creative process of “doing art.”


Arts I courses are four credit introductions to the various arts; Arts II courses provide performance and studio opportunities.
