Education

Humanities Institute will offer courses in the humanities in several languages and will use the delivery methods most appropriate for the learners. These methods include Internet-based distance education, supported in some cases with educational materials.

The approach used by the Institute involves a three-pronged approach. First, the student is provided principles, theoretical foundation and background to be able to analyze the works effectively. Second, the student is required to carefully read and discuss texts. Finally, theories are applied to the texts, and the students achieve a deeper level of learning that they can take with them and apply in the future.

Curriculum and courses are designed by select educators specialized in their field, and are particularly prepared in view of the Institute's specific objectives.

Principles

  • Theory
     
  • Current ideas and ideologies
     
  • Past / historical perspectives

Specific knowledge of primary and secondary sources.

  • Primary texts (classics / canonical)
     
  • Secondary texts (supportive, analytic, critical)

Application

  • Applying theory to specific examples;
     
  • Generalizing meta-cognitively from specific texts to form general statements which can be supported by the texts;
     
  • Comparative evaluations;
     
  • Synthesizing information from texts and contexts to develop insights and supportable findings.
