Renaissance Literature, Art, and Music

This cluster bridges and integrates courses in the humanities and fine arts. You will learn about the Renaissance as a movement, with key unifying themes, aesthetic concerns, stylistic characteristics, and philosophical issues. These features can be identified, studied, and linked across the literature, art, and music of the period. You will gain insight not only into the characteristics and significance of the Renaissance, but also into the benefits and problems of studying culture and the history of ideas in "periods."
