Humanities

Universities and colleges set their own admission requirements for higher education courses, so they vary broadly. Depending on the course, graduate student may be able to get into higher education with a range of qualifications. If you're applying to do a Foundation Degree course, you may find that work experience is taken into consideration alongside any qualifications you have. Some higher education institutes and colleges offer Foundation Years as preparation for a certain degree courses. They usually don't result in separate criteria as they simply qualify you to enter the degree program itself. Foundation Years aren't within reach for all degree courses, however.

Humanities and social sciences is an area of study which prepares students for a huge variety of industries when it comes time to choose a career. Social workers, artists and teaching careers are popular options for those who complete these courses.

Discover the theological, historical, literary, and archaeological studies connections between Jewish and Christian texts. Course Description Learn a variety of subjects that connect Judaism and Christianity and discover the relevance of ancient Judaism to the New Testament. Syllabus Summary Introduction: Traditional Paradigms Reconsidered We read the Bible through the lens of received traditions – interpretations that have come down to us through the centuries. Most of these interpretations suppose that there was a “Christianity” separate and distinct from “Judaism” immediately after the lifetime of Jesus. Some of these interpretations even place this separation during Jesus’ ministry. In this lesson, we will discover how the “Jesus movement” or “Jesus sect” remained a Jewish group for decades after the destruction of the Jerusalem temple. Dead Sea Scrolls and New Testament Studies This lesson will explore how the Dead Sea Scrolls can be useful for understanding ideas current within the culture in which the New Testament was formed. Samarians and Samaritans: Rethinking the Samaritan Woman This lesson will take a deeper look at the character of the Samaritan Woman in John 4, in the context of Samaritan identity, the view of Judeans and Samaritans toward one another in the first century CE, and the essence of the conversation between Jesus and the Samaritan Woman as a focus on the correct place of worship. John, Jews, and Judaism: Rethinking the Story of Lazarus This lesson will re-examine the portrayal of “the Jews” in the Gospel of John. “Jews” is a most unfortunate translation of... [-]

Photography Course And Text

GrisArt Escuela Superior de Fotografía
Campus Part time 1 month September 2017 Spain Barcelona

The course will start in each session, a series of comparative concepts to transit conjunctions of different types of photography and text, observing the operation of the interactions in the work of various authors. [+]

What is special about the combination of a photographic image with a text? In principle, the relationship will depend on the types of text and photographs that appear simultaneously. If we focus on an artistic level, gains in expressiveness the new product or, on the contrary, causes confusion? What differences and similarities are between these two means of self expression? As Michel Tournier ask, combining photography and text will not be like trying to mix water with fire? Actually we can intuit that they are both so different and so many common elements like brothers. In any case, it is intended that this is a course in a plethora of more questions than answers, as the only way to address the relationship between these two means of expression is through a constant questioning, breaking the cliches. Apparently, the function of the image is to illustrate the action taking place in the text, as this should explain what we see in the former; In other words, the image is always presented as a spatial art, front text, temporal art, in which exposure occurs, explanation and narrative. Beyond this basic complementarity relations are extended in the case of the photographic image because of its special relationship with reality. Not a picture is just a real document or a literary text just fiction. Furthermore, despite its origin pictorial, photography starts talking to finally focus space in time; and this perception is what captivated many writers since the advent of the daguerreotype. The course... [-]

Best Course Studies in Humanities 2017. General ESL Program OHLA uses a skills-based curriculum, focused specifically on developing necessary linguistic skills in five major areas: Reading, writing, listening, speaking and grammar. We, at OHLA, know that the best way to develop these skills is to do it in a “natural” way, the same way we all learned our native languages. We believe that languages are not meant to be memorized, but rather to be used and practiced on a daily basis, in order to maintain continuity and master it in a lesser amount of time. To learn and master the English language, it is necessary not to view it as a step-by-step approach, but rather as a continuous and progressive process, where international students are continuously challenged accordingly as they go through their levels of language study. Languages are continuously learned and improved upon, the same way in which we are always learning and improving our native languages. The main reason for this is that languages are always evolving; just like everything else we see or experience in life. Click here to see our Program Proficiency Scale A proficiency scale is a set of descriptions of the language skills that you can expect to attain during your time at OHLA. Each level in the scale describes a stage in your development of competence. Entry Points Each level lasts 12 weeks and it is sub-divided in six 2-week-units called “blocks”.
