Humanities and Fine Arts

In the Humanities and Fine Arts PEAK, students develop their aesthetic, analytical, and imaginative capacities through courses in language, literature, creative writing, art, music, speech and theatre, philosophy, and religious studies. By inquiring into the historical and cultural contexts of human expression and values, students learn to read in the fullest sense of the word. They discern complexities and find meaning across the range of oral, written, visual, and aural expressions of human experience. At the same time, they learn to communicate logically, clearly, persuasively, and evocatively, and they encounter the pleasures and challenges of creative work.
