Arts and Humanities (AH)

The Arts and Humanities (AH) electives deal with subjects under literature, visual and performing arts,
communication, and language and cultural studies. They explore the foundations of human civilization
and its growth throughout time, using various analytical, exploratory and critical methods of study. The
AH domain holds the most number of GEs available. These subjects will open your eyes to a world full of
wonders of human imagination, ingenuity and creativity. Plenty of paperwork and readings, by the way
(though tests are mostly subjective)!

Art Stud 1 Art & Society
Understanding the social aspects of art,
and the artistic aspects of the society
(lolwhut)
The main focus here is the evolution of art
throughout the ages and how these
changes reflect our society (and vice
versa). Art Stud 1 is neither an art
appreciation nor an art production class,
and youll probably need a little bit of
passion in interpreting or analyzing art in
order to enjoy this course.
Art Stud 2
Art Around Us:
Exploring
Everyday Life
Art of/in relation with social matters
encountered in everyday experiences.
(Nope, it's not about drawing or
Picasso!)
This is an art appreciation class, so no
artistic talent required! Here youll get to
know about the simple yet unlikely
applications of art (like sa food culture,
econonics, cyberspace, psychology, etc.)
Minsan may field trip pa, depende sa prof.

your references and no to plagiarism
guys!)

critical analysis of formal literature using
Filipino.

Its like looking at the bigger picture of
the Filipino language.
Film 10 Sineng Sine

quite heavy. Take THE Ramon Bautista for
a more awesome Film 10 experience!!
