You will learn to look at the concerns of other cultures and to reassess your own values. You may later specialize in any of the fine arts, literature, and philosophy or in the history of the arts of a particular period or country. Survey courses include the study of the arts of Asia, Africa, Latin America, ethnic American groups and traditional western regions.
