ENG 247 Creative Expression and Human Nature

3 hours

In this course, students examine works of art to investigate how they illustrate different theories of human nature. Artworks may include poetry, short stories, novels, songs, films and even visuals, which will be studied using key philosophical frameworks. Students will learn to analyze modes of creative expressions through a variety of discipline-specific vocabulary and will come to understand works of art as vehicles through which meaning is made, exchanged, and interpreted. Through their writing, students will be regularly asked to reflect on their discoveries in relationship to their own academic and professional interests.
