About the Block Plan
The Idea of Liberal Arts Education in Philosophy, Politics, Literature and Film
Get acquainted with the historical origins and development of the liberal arts, the development of the American liberal arts college, including the history of Colorado College. Examine classical and modern documents on the idea of liberal arts education and contemporary arguments about the future of the liberal arts.
Emotion and Meaning in Music
Why do you like your favorite music? Individual preference emerges from the effect of the music on your emotions and the appeal of specific compositional aspects. In this course, students are challenged to create their own music individually and in groups. The final project is a collaborative creation of several short operas.
The Southwest: An Introduction
Experience an interdisciplinary and multicultural introduction to the Greater Southwest! The physical settings, histories, peoples, cultures, conflicting ethnic demands, and common problems are shown through anthropological, artistic, geographical, historical, and literary approaches.
Colorado College recognizes and honors the original inhabitants who first settled in the area and who called the nearby highest mountain “Tava,” the original name given by the Ute people to what is now known as Pikes Peak. At CC, we respect all peoples and strive to grow as a unique and welcoming community.
