This Writing for the Humanities website includes the syllabus, schedule, assignments, and OER reading materials for the course. The syllabus covers a number of genres, and examines what it means to write for the humanities. This stretches beyond Art and Literature to cover History, Philosophy, Theater, Music, and Media Communications. The assignments are designed to help students in their future careers, especially if they aim to work in the Humanities, which include teaching, curating, counseling, technical writing and journalism. The assignments will teach students how to compose an effective resume and cover letter, how to create a focused report based on an interview, how to write an op-ed, how to write an informative review of an event, and how to write a compelling grant proposal. Students will also learn how to create an online portfolio, and how to share their ideas in multimedia presentations.
