The Department of Comparative Arts provides an unparalleled program surveying fine art, music, performing and visual arts in both the East and West. Its cross-disciplinary approach covers many areas such as comparative research, classic academics, and arts appreciation.
In the age of uncertainty which the boundaries between arts are becoming increasingly ambiguous, comparative analysis between the modes of visual, aural, and literary representation and humanistic scholarship can be interdependent and complementary in order to illuminate the nature of the arts.
The inquiry of wide-ranging arts areas allows the students to understand the works themselves through the unique lens of other arts. In addition, the most fundamental aspects of human culture are investigated through comparison of different forms of creative and imaginative expressions of art.
