Course Description

Studies in the Humanities are as multi-faceted, creative and rich as humans themselves. Human culture, human history, human art, human survival, human exploration are all elements of the science of Humanities. Authors in the Humanities are not merely writing; they are indeed celebrating the rich heritage of being human. The goal of this course on publishing in Humanities is to assist aspiring and young authors in the Humanities with that celebration.

We will be focusing on the following aspects in this course:

  • Important research concepts
  • Definition of Humanities 
  • Methods, methodology and research design
  • Practical considerations
