2023-2024 Cal Poly Humboldt Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Lower Division GE Area C: Arts


GE Notes:

GE requirements cannot be waived and other Cal Poly Humboldt courses cannot be substituted for approved GE courses. To fulfill a particular requirement, a course must be completed during the academic year in which the GE status is designated in the catalog. Courses that meet outcomes of more than one GE area A-F, may only be used to satisfy one of those areas.


Area C Arts and Humanities courses cultivate intellect, imagination, sensibility, and sensitivity. Students work to

  • apply discipline‐specific vocabulary and central discipline‐specific concepts and principles to a specific instance, literary work, or artistic creation;
  • respond subjectively as well as objectively to aesthetic experiences and differentiate between emotional and intellectual responses;
  • explain the nature and scope of the perspectives and contributions found in a particular discipline within the arts and humanities as related to the human experience, both individually (theirs) and collectively; and
  • demonstrate an understanding of the intellectual, imaginative, and cultural elements involved in the creative arts through their participation in and study of drama, music, studio art, and/or creative writing.
