MiniMasters​​™ (SoH)


MiniMasters in Professional Development: Writing, Research, and Practical Ethics in the Information Age
The MiniMasters™ is designed to develop participants’ skills in written communication, with a focus on reasoning about matters of ethical, social, and political significance in an increasingly globalized world. The curriculum combines technical courses in academic writing, practical ethics and digital literacy with substantive topics from across the humanities. Participants will acquire a global outlook through exposure to the written experiences of peoples of multiple nationalities, cultures, diasporas, linguistic traditions, economic strata, and gender identities. A significant portion of the course will evaluate social norms and governmental policies that impact lives in a broad cross-section of the world’s population.

Participants who complete this MiniMasters™ will be skilled at writing articulately and persuasively about the most pressing challenges that face the world today – and do so in a way that adds value to how their employers (in business, industry, NGO’s and civil-service) engage customers, shareholders, industry partners and other relevant parties.
