Upper Division GE Area C: Arts & Humanities


GE Notes:

GE requirements cannot be waived and other HSU 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.


Upon completing this requirement, students will be able 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 will 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.

Upon completing a course in the arts, students will be able to:

  • demonstrate an understanding of the intellectual, imaginative, and cultural elements involved in the creative arts through their (or, “as a result of their”) participation in and study of drama, music, studio art, and/or creative writing.

Upon completing a course in the humanities, students will be able to:

  • discuss the intellectual, historical, and cultural elements of written literature through their study of great works of the human imagination.
