HUM 121

HUM 121

Western Culture and the Arts: Renaissance through the 20th Century

This is a good beginning class for those who want a broad overview of Western cultural history. This class includes modern literature, art, and philosophy in historical context. It is not necessary to take HUM 120 before taking HUM 121. HUM 121 counts toward the Humanities Fine Arts requirement.
