Learning, studyFIT

A hefty course for KSW students and everyone else

Render unto Caesar: Unit Three looks at Latin lexemes and argumentative essays

Having been accepted into your dream degree programme, you might be wondering how to fill the time between now and the start of the winter semester.  Wonder no more.  The student support division studyFIT has a host of bridging courses to tide you over.  For starters, English for Humanities and Social Sciences is a course suitable for just about everyone – regardless of your specific degree path.  What is covered?

We explore Rhetoric and Composition and consider some conventions in contemporary academic writing.  The units feature readings and talking points taken from various fields, for example History, Philosophy and Politics.  Whether it has been a while since you hit the higher ed books or you are in fact pursuing a degree for the first time, you can find out current practice in:

  • Abstracts
  • Academic Integrity
  • Articles
  • Essays
  • The five-chapter thesis

There are no synchronous sessions, as everything you need is nestled within Moodle.  Sign up and engage with the:

  • Video lectures
  • Interviews
  • Readings
  • Exercises
  • Quizzes

Although it is a self-paced course, there are optional writing assignments for those who would like individual feedback on their writing.  As this is not a grammar course, you need to have an intermediate command of English, at the very least, for the course to be worthwhile.  And, if you whizz through the quizzes and would like to earn a certificate at some point, there are even periodical assessments offered.  Improve your academic English by engaging with the humanities and social sciences-themed material.  You’ll be glad you did!
