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 or place. 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 the East. Courses also provide introductions to the Middle East and to the biblical traditions of the Old and New Testament.
