Best Online Courses in Humanities Studies 2019

An online course is a class that can be taken to accumulate educational credits or complete a degree program. The length of the course can vary based on the school and your field of study, but attending online means you can register for classes in any part of the world.

What is an online course in humanities studies? A humanities course covers a range of people-centered topics, including philosophy, theology and art. It also explores the field of sociology and the development of cultural identities and themes. Courses may focus on artistic skills such as photography and creative writing, or economic studies such as international business, policy-making and geopolitics.

Students who take humanities benefit in many ways while learning about sociological theories and standards. By studying the values and belief systems of different cultures, students are able to cultivate a better understanding of effective leadership and communication. These skills are often essential to the growth and transformation of modern society.

Online courses in humanities are typically available to students all over the world, but program requirements tend to vary depending on your field of study and the location of the school. The cost of registration and enrollment can also be affected by the length and difficulty of the course, so contact the institution of your choice to find out more about payment options and fees.

A course in humanities can encourage students to enter a number of specialized fields. This includes journalism, psychology and foreign policy, professions that are centered around communication and development. Those who are interested in the study of linguistics can seek employment as an interpreter or historian. Students who are more focused on teaching and expression might prefer a career in filmmaking or early childhood education.  

With online courses, you can establish a flexible schedule with convenient enrollment options and degree programs. As a result, virtual classrooms are becoming more popular with students who are already juggling a busy lifestyle. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Course Summary

We all know what good writing is. It’s the novel we can’t put down, the poem we never forgot, and the speech that changes the way we look at the world. Good writing is the memo that gets action and the letter that says what a phone call can’t.

In business writing, the language is concrete, the point of view is clear, and the points are well expressed. Good writing is hard work, and even the best writers get discouraged. However, with practice, you can feel more confident about your own writing. This two-day workshop will give you the tools to become a better writer.

Work disability occurs when a worker is unable to resume or remain at work because of a health problem.

Workshop Description

This workshop will provide us with the fundamental keys to understanding poetry and poetic writing. We will be based on the reading and analysis of poets of reference in the contemporary, at the same time, discovering our own voice, its rhythm, its structure, its way of being made and of being said.

In order to do this, it will be proposed during the course of practice on the poem from the first day: how to face the blank page, how to find the right mold for the expression of meaning, how to let the text rest and then rewrite it and finally we can perform that intense work of language that is the poem. The learning will be completed with the writing of your own texts so that during the process, and from an appropriate theoretical framework, you can find your own voice.... [-]
