Students completing the BA in art (with a specialization in art history or art studio) will develop skills in formal and contextual analysis, demonstrate knowledge of art history, demonstrate technical skills, and produce a capstone project that addresses art historical, curatorial, or studio contexts. The purpose of the course is to assist students in developing a portfolio and thesis. For art history majors, participation in the senior research preview and subsequent 56 research review precede enrollment in this course.
In this course, we will view films made by some of the great East Asian directors of the past 50 years, particularly of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Japan.
This course will introduce students to business practices and strategies in Asia based upon the instructor’s work and study in Japan, South Korea, China, and Taiwan. Students will acquire familiarity with the languages, cultures and histories of East Asia to prepare them for smooth interaction with business people from Asian cultures. This course should also enable students to proactively understand and manage cultural differences and make life and work much more pleasant in an international context.
