Alias I've to content myself (full stop)

Higher Education: Certificate in Humanities

On a personal note, as well as being a Cert Hum (Open), that is a conferred academic title and entitles me to put ‘Cert Hum (Open)’ after my name (aside comment: and will do so on my blog because its appropriate), for completing the course ‘A103 – An Introduction to Humanities’, which had eight disciplines to study:

art history, literature, music, philosophy, classical studies, history, religious studies, and the history of science & technology. 

Which I successfully passed. For as stated by the Open University Awards and Ceremony Centre regarding the above qualification, the following information is given in this passage:

“…This certificate is awarded on successful completion of A103 ‘An Introduction to Humanities’.  It recognises that the student has gained a broad interdisciplinary knowledge of concepts and ideas essential to the study of 8 disciplines…”

Alias — I’ve also to content myself with ‘completing’ the other inter-disciplinary courses of the Arts faculty ie. A207 – Enlightenment to Romanticism and AA305 – The Renaissance in Europe, without any further acknowledgement for such an achievement.

As all these courses evolved and enhanced the improvement of the relevant study skills, in the areas of good reasoning, clear expression; being effective in exposition and argument, and the ability to select material, develop reading in context and content by analysis and interpretation skills (which included visual images and musical text/performances) across a range of discourses.

And I now harken back to those days of endeavour, but if the OU happened to consider a Dip Hum (Open) in this field of multi-disciplinary study < ahem > there would be no stopping me from stepping forth into the foray of new-found information < hinting broadly > for surely that would alleviate the wretch one feels most profoundly…
