Back to "Fall 2016" courses

This course, along with HUM 217, forms the first part of an intensive year-long exploration of the landmark achievements of the Western intellectual tradition in literature, philosophy, and history. With an interdisciplinary team of faculty drawn from the humanities and social sciences, students are introduced to a variety of perspectives on pivotal texts, events, music and art of European civilization from antiquity to the middle ages. The course is enhanced by guest lectures and class trips to museums, concerts, and plays. This double-credit course meets for six hours a week and fulfills distribution requirements in both LA and HA.
