Spring 2014 Course Offerings

Classics will offer a new course next semester, "Ancient Greco-Italian Art and Architecture." It is cross-listed with Art History and counts as a Liberal Arts in Practice (LAP-1) course. It will meet MWF 2:45-3:50. The description is as follows:

This course explores the art and architecture of Ancient Greek, Etruscan, and Roman societies. In addition to the study of material remains from the ancient Mediterranean, students will participate in several project-based exercises (including sculpture, bridge-building, and community exploration), all of which will aid in a deeper appreciation of the design and construction of monumental spaces, sculptures, and utilitarian structures. Finally, students will be expected to write a research paper on an object of their choosing - ideally an item from the museum collections at Beloit or the Art Institute of Chicago. Can be taken as LAP-1. (2A, C)

  • Latin 108 (Beginning Elementary Latin II), MWF 8:45-9:50
