5F. English, Research, and Human Rights

ColWrit 5F. English, Research, and Human Rights

3 units

The topic of human rights has the power to unify  our world – or divide it. In this intensive 3 unit course, students will explore contemporary issues in human rights while improving their critical listening, vocabulary, oral communication and note-taking skills. They will use their English skills in authentic ways, by studying and reporting on documents, speeches and articles; participating in mock international committee meetings and press conferences; interviewing human rights professionals, volunteers and victims in the San Francisco Bay Area; and participating in a program-wide education event. This is an excellent opportunity to develop the skills needed for participation in university courses and in the fields of international human rights, business and law. Suitable for high-intermediate through advanced students.

Please note, students enrolling in Colwrit/ESL 5F course must take an online placement exam.
