HON 210SS - The Art of Advocacy

(4 credits) (NWCore option under Self and Society)
Students in this Honors Course examine the tension and opportunities that exists between beauty, Christianity, and social responsibility. This course begins with a survey and examination of theorists whose work is aimed towards an enhanced understanding of the roles that art plays in God’s Kingdom. The course moves to an application of some of these theorists to iconic artistic texts that reflect injustice and/or promote social activism. The course culminates with student-devised projects that make use of forms of artistic expression to address social problems affecting the lives of NWC community.

Prerequisite: Membership in the Honors Program.
