What you'll learn on the course


Course programme

This course develops students’ capacity to write academic essays according to the conventions of the Humanities. It provides the knowledge and vocabulary by which students can critically analyse the work of others as well as their own. The course focuses sustained attention on various modes of academic writing that are used in essay writing and shows how these may be deployed to present a strong argument. The course includes analysis of a range of exemplars as well as essays from academic journals researched by students and related to their disciplinary interests. This study will be accompanied by writing exercises, writing workshops and detailed feedback from both peers and staff.
