Critical Analysis and Semiotics

Critical Analysis and Semiotics
ENGL104*
The paired Critical Analysis and Modern Art course for nonnative speakers explores the major modern artistic movements of Europe and North America from 1840 to 1960, covering Romanticism through Abstract Expressionism. Students will investigate the  crucial issues, arguments, artists, and works of the avant-garde during the modern period. Both the English and Art History faculty teach and plan this course. In both classes, students learn to apply  English standards of reading, writing and speaking skills while reinforcing Art History content and Critical Analysis in reading and writing. Students spend three hours per week in English and three hours per week in Art History, along with additional tutorial hours each week with an art historian and Student Resource Center tutors.
 
A minimum grade of “C” (2.0) is required to pass this course.
