Animal Power in Religion, Art and Science - 23013

This connection is designed to allow students to explore the place of animals in culture and society through the lenses of religion, science and/or the visual arts. The connection may be completed using either two or three courses. Students taking PSY 226  and REL 277  to meet the connection will learn how two different disciplines, one from the humanities and one from the natural sciences, apply their varying methodologies to the same theme. Students taking either PSY 226  or REL 277  (or both) along with ART 215 , ART 315  or ART 325  will explore scientific or religious concepts of animals through visual forms, in addition to their more typical expression in textual media. They will draw inspiration and a content base from their experiences in PSY 226  or REL 277  as they develop their own creative expression in Visual Art. Thus, students should take the visual art course either concurrently with one or both of the other courses, OR take the visual art course after one or both of the other courses. Art students will present their creative work to the rest of the students in the religion or psychology courses at the end of the semester.

A two-course connection must link courses from at least two different areas; a three- course connection must link courses from three areas.
