Humanities courses at ARC:

emphasize the connections between the arts of major cultures in a process which analyzes the core values of a specific age, place, or tradition of ideas. Art, literature, music, and philosophy are viewed in the historical contexts of classical and modern Europe, the cultures of the Americas, and the civilizations of Asia and the Middle East. Courses also provide introductions to understanding the arts themselves. Traditions of thought found in the biblical Old and New Testaments are introduced, as are approaches to culture from atheistic viewpoints.
