ARTH 103 - Survey of Global Art from Prehistory to Fourteenth Century

(3 credits)
This course explores the history of art and visual culture from a variety of geographical and cultural perspectives. Through a comparative and thematic approach, it studies how various techniques inform the making of a work of art; the role that works of art, architecture and other cultural products have played in different societies, civilizations and historical periods; and how different political, religious and philosophical ideas have influenced artistic production across the globe. A museum visit is assigned to experience first-hand examples of art and visual culture from prehistory to the 14th century from within and outside the Western Canon. (Formerly ARTH 201) (CFPA; CGCL)
