This course is designed to provide support and guidance in improving students’ ability to use academic English in written and oral modes through the critical analysis of the concept of modernity.
We are living in the modern era in which we question, reject or hold on to our traditions. In many aspects of modern life, traditions are revisited and adapted; so are we living in a modern life with traditional souls?
This course will provide a comparison between the traditional and modern way of living and explore how they overlap specifically in terms of education, family life, and eating habits.
Human migration is the movement of people from one place to another with the intentions of settling, permanently or temporarily at a new location. It can be both voluntarily or forced depending on various causes such as war, employment opportunities, environmental factors, etc.
People have been migrating for thousands of years and it is quite interesting that the major reasons of migration (invasion, conquest, colonization and immigration) have not changed over millennia.
This course aims to explore the causes, effects and challenges of human migration locally, regionally or globally in the 21st century.
