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.

take place between traditional semesters on select college campuses throughout
the world. The 100% distance courses are available in online, CD-ROM and mobile
device-enhanced versions, and accommodate multiple learning styles by including

experts who are renowned in their fields, and who also understand how to be
effective in distance learning.
