Course Summary

As well as learning the processes and techniques writers use, students will be encouraged to think beyond their perceived limitations while equipping them to exceed themselves.

Throughout the course, students will continually be encouraged to experiment with their own writing, as well as engaging in literary reviews of writing that have preceded them. Based around advice and examples from famous American literary figures, students will encounter the obstacles and opportunities that present themselves when writing – including learning ways to overcome the dreaded writer’s block.

Course Outcomes

What to expect from the Ivy League Experience

This course has been specifically designed to provide students with an insight into university life in the United States. Students will nominate both a major and a minor subject, and will spend two weeks building their knowledge and skills in their chosen subject areas.

Students will receive 35 hours of tuition across each two-week session, following their major subject for around 75% of the time and their minor choice for the remaining hours.

In their major class, students will learn in a variety of styles, such as traditional classroom learning, interactive seminars and through debates and discussions with fellow students from around the world. Students can expect to have their views challenged and discuss different points of view, and can expect to leave with new insights and a refreshed ability to defend their own viewpoints.

For the minor classes, which will be more skills-based, students can expect to work in small groups and individually in order to solve a problem or bring an idea to life. In doing so, they will work on key attributes for future study and employment, including presentation skills, leadership, teambuilding, creative thinking and evaluating potential solutions.
