This is a mandatory course for first-year Cultural Heritage students intended to foster academic research methods and writing skills that will enable students to participate fully in scholarly life and discourse as professionals. Besides providing a solid background in basic research methods and academic writing necessary for prospectus and thesis development, the course is designed to familiarize students with genres and types of writing that they will encounter in their academic and professional career.
The former includes working towards a clear statement of dissertation topics, research questions, a well-thought-out description of methodology, a consideration of potential primary and secondary sources, and a carefully prepared bibliography. The latter entails various aspects of writing, presenting and communicating as a cultural heritage professional, familiarizing with genres and writing for different audiences.
The standards and requirements of all assignments will reflect the goal of communicating one’s research and intellectual work to the international scholarly community and engage in professional projects in high quality English prose.
