Over the summer, our Liberal Arts Faculty have worked diligently to create more diverse course offerings. This fall we will be offering Living Through History: Culture Wars. We are also revisiting the art history sequence to be inclusive of all cultures.
NEXT STEPS: Additional courses and curriculum changes are being explored for Spring 2021 semester and beyond.
UPDATE: In the spring 2021 semester, LCAD will offer an Asian Art and Culture course. Additionally, a course on “Mesoamerican Empires of the Aztec and Maya” will be on the schedule.
The Liberal Arts Faculty is in the process of revamping its curriculum with the goal of increasing the diversity of offerings in art history and culture. In lieu of the traditional Western Art surveys, focused courses will be offered on a rotating basis. Suggested focused topics include Art & Culture of Africa, Female Artists, Poets and Philosophers of the Renaissance, The Mexican Muralist Movement and Revolutionary Art of the Americas.
