Benefits of Renewable Energy Use

Wind turbines and solar panels are an increasingly common sight. But why? What are the benefits of renewable energies—and how do they improve our health, environment, and economy?

This page explores the many positive impacts of clean energy, including the benefits of wind ,  solar ,  geothermal ,  hydroelectric , and  biomass . For more information on their negative impacts—including effective solutions to avoid, minimize, or mitigate—see our page on  The Environmental Impacts of Renewable Energy Technologies .

Less global warming

Human activity is overloading our atmosphere with carbon dioxide and other  global warming emissions . These gases act like a blanket, trapping heat. The result is a web of  significant and harmful impacts , from stronger, more frequent storms, to drought, sea level rise, and extinction.

In the United States, about 29 percent of global warming emissions come from our electricity sector. Most of those emissions come from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas [ 1 ,  2 ].

What is CO2e?

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most prevalent greenhouse gas, but other air pollutants—such as methane—also cause global warming. Different energy sources produce different amounts of these pollutants. To make comparisons easier, we use a carbon dioxide equivalent, or CO2e—the amount of carbon dioxide required to produce an equivalent amount of warming.

In contrast, most renewable energy sources produce little to no global warming emissions. Even when including “life cycle” emissions of clean energy (ie, the emissions from each stage of a technology’s life—manufacturing, installation, operation, decommissioning), the global warming emissions associated with renewable energy are minimal [ 3 ].

The comparison becomes clear when you look at the numbers. Burning natural gas for electricity releases between 0.6 and 2 pounds of carbon dioxide equivalent per kilowatt-hour (CO2E/kWh); coal emits between 1.4 and 3.6 pounds of CO2E/kWh.  Wind , on the other hand, is responsible for only 0.02 to 0.04 pounds of CO2E/kWh on a life-cycle basis;  solar  0.07 to 0.2;  geothermal  0.1 to 0.2; and  hydroelectric  between 0.1 and 0.5.

Renewable electricity generation from  biomass  can have a wide range of global warming emissions depending on the resource and whether or not it is sustainably sourced and harvested.

Different sources of energy produce different amounts of heat-trapping gases. As shown in this chart, renewable energies tend to have much lower emissions than other sources, such as natural gas or coal.
Source: IPCC, 2011 Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (Chapter 9).

Increasing the supply of renewable energy would allow us to replace carbon-intensive energy sources and significantly reduce US global warming emissions.

For example, a 2009 UCS analysis found that a 25 percent by 2025 national renewable electricity standard would lower power plant CO2 emissions 277 million metric tons annually by 2025—the equivalent of the annual output from 70 typical (600 MW) new coal plants [ 4 ].

In addition, a ground-breaking study by the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) explored the feasibility of generating 80 percent of the country’s electricity from renewable sources by 2050. They found that renewable energy could help reduce the electricity sector’s emissions by approximately 81 percent [ 5 ].

Improved public health

The air and water pollution emitted by coal and natural gas plants is linked with breathing problems, neurological damage, heart attacks, cancer, premature death, and a host of other serious problems. The pollution affects everyone: one Harvard University study estimated the life cycle costs and public health effects of coal to be an estimated $74.6 billion every year. That’s equivalent to 4.36 cents per kilowatt-hour of electricity produced—about one-third of the average electricity rate for a typical US home [ 6 ].

Most of these negative health impacts come from air and water pollution that clean energy technologies simply don’t produce. Wind, solar, and hydroelectric systems generate electricity with no associated air pollution emissions. Geothermal and  biomass   systems emit some air pollutants, though total air emissions are generally much lower than those of coal- and natural gas-fired power plants.

In addition, wind and solar energy require essentially no water to operate and thus do not pollute water resources or strain supplies by competing with agriculture, drinking water, or other important water needs. In contrast, fossil fuels can have a  significant impact on water resources : both coal mining and natural gas drilling can pollute sources of drinking water, and all thermal power plants, including those powered by coal, gas, and oil, withdraw and consume water for cooling. 

Biomass and geothermal power plants, like coal- and natural gas-fired power plants, may require water for cooling. Hydroelectric power plants can disrupt river ecosystems both upstream and downstream from the dam. However, NREL’s 80-percent-by-2050 renewable energy study, which included biomass and geothermal, found that total water consumption and withdrawal would decrease significantly in a future with high renewables [ 7 ].

Inexhaustible energy

Strong winds, sunny skies, abundant plant matter, heat from the earth, and fast-moving water can each provide a vast and constantly replenished supply of energy. A relatively small fraction of US electricity currently comes from these sources, but that could change: studies have repeatedly shown that renewable energy can provide a significant share of future electricity needs, even after accounting for potential constraints [ 9 ].

In fact, a major government-sponsored study found that clean energy could contribute somewhere between three and 80 times its 2013 levels, depending on assumptions [8]. And the previously mentioned NREL study found that renewable energy could comfortably provide up to 80 percent of US electricity by 2050.

Jobs and other economic benefits

Compared with fossil fuel technologies, which are typically mechanized and capital intensive, the renewable energy industry is more labor intensive. Solar panels need humans to install them; wind farms need technicians for maintenance.

This means that, on average, more jobs are created for each unit of electricity generated from renewable sources than from fossil fuels.

Renewable energy already supports thousands of jobs in the United States. In 2016, the wind energy industry directly employed over 100,000 full-time-equivalent employees in a variety of capacities, including manufacturing, project development, construction and turbine installation, operations and maintenance, transportation and logistics, and financial, legal, and consulting services [ 10 ]. More than 500 factories in the United States manufacture parts for wind turbines, and wind power project installations in 2016 alone represented $13.0 billion in investments [ 11 ].

Other renewable energy technologies employ even more workers. In 2016, the solar industry employed more than 260,000 people, including jobs in solar installation, manufacturing, and sales, a 25% increase over 2015 [ 12 ]. The hydroelectric power industry employed approximately 66,000 people in 2017 [ 13 ]; the geothermal industry employed 5,800 people [ 14] .

Increased support for renewable energy could create even more jobs. The 2009 Union of Concerned Scientists study of a 25-percent-by-2025 renewable energy standard found that such a policy would create more than three times as many jobs (more than 200,000) as producing an equivalent amount of electricity from fossil fuels [ 15 ]. 

In contrast, the entire coal industry employed 160,000 people in 2016 [ 26 ].

In addition to the jobs directly created in the renewable energy industry, growth in clean energy can create positive economic “ripple” effects. For example, industries in the renewable energy supply chain will benefit, and unrelated local businesses will benefit from increased household and business incomes [ 16 ].

Local governments also benefit from clean energy, most often in the form of property and income taxes and other payments from renewable energy project owners. Owners of the land on which wind projects are built often receive lease payments ranging from $3,000 to $6,000 per megawatt of installed capacity, as well as payments for power line easements and road rights-of-way. They may also earn royalties based on the project’s annual revenues. Farmers and rural landowners can generate new sources of supplemental income by producing feedstocks for biomass power facilities.

UCS analysis found that a 25-by-2025 national renewable electricity standard would stimulate $263.4 billion in new capital investment for renewable energy technologies, $13.5 billion in new landowner income from? biomass production and/or wind land lease payments, and $11.5 billion in new property tax revenue for local communities [ 17 ].

Stable energy prices

Renewable energy is providing affordable electricity across the country right now, and can help stabilize energy prices in the future.

Although renewable facilities require upfront investments to build, they can then operate at very low cost (for most clean energy technologies, the “fuel” is free). As a result, renewable energy prices can be very stable over time.

Moreover, the costs of renewable energy technologies have declined steadily, and are projected to drop even more. For example, the average price to install solar dropped more than 70 percent between 2010 and 2017 [ 20 ]. The cost of generating electricity from wind dropped 66 percent between 2009 and 2016 [ 21 ]. Costs will likely decline even further as markets mature and companies increasingly take advantage of economies of scale.

In contrast, fossil fuel prices can vary dramatically and are prone to substantial price swings. For example, there was a rapid increase in US coal prices due to rising global demand before 2008, then a rapid fall after 2008 when global demands declined [ 23 ]. Likewise, natural gas prices have fluctuated greatly since 2000 [ 25 ].

Source: Energy Information Administration (EIA). 2013. Coal news and markets report .

Using more renewable energy can lower the prices of and demand for natural gas and coal by increasing competition and diversifying our energy supplies. And an increased reliance on renewable energy can help protect consumers when fossil fuel prices spike. 

Reliability and resilience

 Wind and solar are less prone to large-scale failure because they are distributed and modular. Distributed systems are spread out over a large geographical area, so a severe weather event in one location will not cut off power to an entire region. Modular systems are composed of numerous individual wind turbines or solar arrays. Even if some of the equipment in the system is damaged, the rest can typically continue to operate.

For example, Hurricane Sandy damaged fossil fuel-dominated electric generation and distribution systems in New York and New Jersey and left millions of people without power. In contrast, renewable energy projects in the Northeast weathered Hurricane Sandy with minimal damage or disruption [ 25 ]. 

Water scarcity is another risk for non-renewable power plants. Coal, nuclear, and many natural gas plants depend on having sufficient water for cooling, which means that severe droughts and heat waves can put electricity generation at risk. Wind and solar photovoltaic systems do not require water to generate electricity and can operate reliably in conditions that may otherwise require closing a fossil fuel-powered plant. (For more information, see  How it Works: Water for Electricity .)  

The risk of disruptive events will also increase in the future as droughts, heat waves, more intense storms, and increasingly severe wildfires become more frequent due to global warming—increasing the need for resilient, clean technologies.

Response to Freire’s The “Banking” Concept of Education

August 31, 2011 //
1

When I read  ‘The Banker Concept’ by Freire it reminded me of  high school. In my high school classes my teacher would lecture the entire class and students being “listening objects.” I believe that lecturing the whole class period can be good with taking notes and memorizing the material covered but for the most part I prefer classroom interaction because I learn better if I participate in discussions and sharing opinions.

In his essay The Banking Concept of Education,  Freire  expounds on the mechanical flaw in the current system, and offers an approach that he believes medicates the learning-teaching disorder in the classroom. The flawed conception, Freire explains, is the oppressive “depositing” of information (hence the term ‘banking’) by teachers into their students. But, according to Freire, a “liberating” educational practice (his problem-posing method.

The “banking concept,” as termed by Freire, is essentially an act that hinders the intellectual growth of students by turning them into, figuratively speaking, comatose “receptors” and “collectors” of information that have no real connection to their lives.

“Implicit in the banking concept is the assumption of a dichotomy between human beings and the world: a person is merely in the world, not with the world or with others; the individual is a spectator, not re-creator. In this view the person is not a conscious being ; he or she is rather the possessor of a consciousness: an empty “mind” passively open to the reception of deposits of reality from the world outside” (260)

What Freire means by this is that the banking concept impose between a person (teacher and/or student) and the “real world”, resulting in the evident of his or her true consciousness, since the former can only be realized through the relationships and connections the individual draws from the material to their life.

In this approach the roles of students and teachers become less structured, and both engage enrichment to effectively ascertain knowledge from each other.

According to Freire, “Knowledge emerges only through invention and re-invention, through the restless, impatient, continuing, hopeful inquiry human beings pursue in the world, with the world, and with each other”(257)

enables teachers and students to become Subjects of the educational process by overcoming authoritarianism and an alienating intellectualism” (258-259).

“students and teachers actually “discovering” knowledge with and from each other, because the teacher poses a question but already has the solution in mind. In this way, the students are directed towards a particular outcome, and do not have independent thought-processes or the teacher poses a question with no intention of steering the dialogue towards a single answer, but it is the remaining percent of answers, which they had never actually considered, that they in fact take interest in..”

In which I have  experienced this form of education in and outside school my whole life even in college. “Education is suffering from narration sickness” (256)

The two types of education are important because of what they imply about the conext, purpose, and effects of education, not just because of what happens in the classroom.

” Many students interpret banking education to be synonymous with classrooms where there are lecture, where students are expected to memorize and regurgitate, where facts are taught. They often say math, sciences, and languages must be banked, or that elementary school must be banking.  They see problem-posing classrooms as ones where students have discussion, sharing their opinions, being creative.”

I would agree that most of my college career has been based on the problem-posing system due to this quote having discussions, sharing opinions, and more hands on learning.

Paulo Freire compares two concepts of education, banking and problem-posing.  In banking teachers assume students are passive, take all control, determine what will be learned, and “force-feed” information to students. ” The world is seen as static; students are encouraged to “fit in to” the world as it is”. ” Banking encourages students to accept the world as it is, separates the learner and the learner’s consciousness from the world, and so contributes to oppression.”  In problem-posing, students and teachers carry on a dialogue to teach one another.  The world is seen as always in the process of becoming; students are seen as parts of that.  Students are therefore active, becoming empowered to criticize the world and so change it.  “Problem-posing thereby results in the liberation of the students and in the revolution against oppressive social and economic systems.”  Problem-posing education allows people to develop their human natures fully because it depends on  (communication), and recognizes the relationship between people and the world,”encourages inquiry”, and leads to transformation in students life’s.

    Paulo Freire “The Banking Concept of Education” Essay Sample

    Introduction

    “The Banking Concept of Education” was invented by Paulo Freire in an effort to depict the deductions of the modern-day educational system. Much unfavorable judgment has been addressed towards this work ; much truth the work has besides revealed. It is hard to reason. whether the writer was wholly right or incorrect – his premises have solid practical bases but can besides be debated. However. it is still interesting and utile to reexamine Freire’s statements as for what banking instruction is.

    The Banking construct of instruction

    The kernel of the banking construct of instruction created by Freire is in the fact that pupils do non get and utilize cognition to analyse ; the cognition alternatively is merely deposited into them by the instructor. This procedure if viewed by Freire as the agency of impeding creativeness in instruction in general. “This is the banking construct of instruction. in which the range of action allowed to the pupils extends merely every bit far as having. filing. and hive awaying the deposits” ( Freire ) . Of class. one may reason that we ourselves are the Godheads of our instruction. and our cognition. However. enterprise in instruction is non ever applicable. particularly when the educational environment does non let any creativeness. as Freire tries to carry us. Therefore. the writer of the banking construct in instruction attempts to turn out that finally. pupils can non transform the deposited cognition. as they are non taught to use their transformational accomplishments.

    “In the banking construct of instruction. cognition is a gift bestowed by those who consider themselves knowing upon those whom they consider to cognize nothing” ( Freire ) . As a effect. Freire speaks about “banking” instructors as oppressors. mentioning to the present educational system as “oppressing” . The cognition has ever been the procedure of enquiry. but the banking attacks in instruction alteration these thoughts. and do instruction similar to the suppressing political orientations: the instructor represents himself as opposed to his pupils. and they do non hold any pick to alter this or to get away this resistance. In the banking construct of instruction. pupils have to take their instructors for granted. and as people who know everything. while the pupils know nil ( Freire ) . The major contradiction of the banking instruction Freire depicts in the list of 10 attitudes and patterns of conventional instruction.

    We have already mentioned the two of these attitudes. when the cognition is simply deposited into pupils. and when they are accepted by instructors as cognizing nil. Freire assumes that in his attack towards instruction. “the teacher thinks and the pupils are thought about” ( Freire ) . However. it is hard to understand here. in what manner the pupils are being thought of and how it relates to the discussed theoretical model. Does this mean that the pupils are thought about every bit simply the depositories of cognition? This premise can be right in the visible radiation of the already discussed issues. “The teacher negotiations and the pupils listen – meekly ; the instructor subjects and the pupils are disciplined” ( Freire ) . Obviously. the subjugation about which Freire speaks is besides reflected in the fact that pupils are non taken as the sensible objects that are capable of analysing and transforming this cognition. The subjugation is noticed in the state of affairs. when the pupils are non merely invariably disciplined by their instructors. but when they besides have to follow with the picks enforced by the instructor ( Freire ) . Many of us retrieve the state of affairss. when we had to work on the subject chosen by the coach without any possibility to discourse or alter it. Despite the nonsubjective nisus of the present educational system towards flexibleness. the figure of “oppression” illustrations is excessively big to do this “flexibility goal” at least closer.

    “The oppressors use their “humanitarianism” to continue a profitable state of affairs. Therefore they react about instinctively against any experiment in instruction which stimulates the critical modules and is non content with a partial reappraisal of reality” ( Freire ) .

    The kernel of these oppressors should be decently understood. and Freire makes particular accent on this apprehension: the oppressors ( instructors ) tend to alter the consciousness of the oppressed ( the pupils ) and non the state of affairs. which is called as “oppressive” . The subjugation to creativeness – this is the footing of the banking attack in instruction ; Freire describes a simple illustration in big instruction: “students will ne’er be proposed to critically see reality” ( Freire ) . Beyer is really enlightening in how he analyzes Freire’s construct: “Freire believes this is a signifier of subjugation in that pupils can non see the universe as they wish but alternatively are forced to see the universe in a mode that is approved by those in power” ( 98 ) .

    Freire creates a distinguishable resistance between the banking instruction and problem-posing instruction. He obviously supports problem-posing construct for its capacity to decide the contradiction between the instructor and the pupils. when the instructor takes the place superior to that of pupils: “the instructor is no longer simply the-one-who-teaches. but one who is himself taught in duologue with the students” ( Freire ) . Therefore. the problem-posing instruction is the look of Freire’s thoughts as for what instruction should be and what organize it should take. Education should non take the mere signifier of person being taught by person who pretends he knows more ; instruction should be created in the procedure when the teacher’s authorization is no longer valid. As a consequence. the procedures of instruction and development take topographic point in changeless interaction between the pupils and the instructor.

    It is possible to propose that Freire has gone beyond the traditional bounds of treatment within the subject of instruction. “He is besides reasoning that the manner of dealingss between instructor and pupil are of import determining relationships for how to be toward each other as humans” ( Beyer 103 ) . We ourselves have become the informants of the state of affairss. when instructors tended to stress their superior place towards us. We besides know how it hurts to understand that the instructor does non take us as equal. This may go a serious obstruction on the manner towards understanding between the instructor and the pupil. and as a consequence. on the manner towards effectual instruction.

    Permanence and alteration are besides used by Freire as the two determiners of banking and problem-posing instruction:

    “The banking method emphasizes permanency and becomes reactionist ; problem-posing instruction – which accepts neither a “well-behaved” present nor a preset fixture – roots itself in the dynamic present and becomes revolutionary” ( Freire ) .

    Therefore. permanency and alteration are the two basic determiners. one of which ( permanency ) determines banking instruction as oppressive towards alteration and creativeness. and the other one ( alteration ) is the basic characteristic of good problem-posing instruction. The dramatic difference between the problem-posing and the banking construct of instruction is in the fact that. as Freire puts it. the banking construct does non let the individual thought of his state of affairs critically. It instead imposes fatalistic perceptual experience of any life state of affairs. The problem-posing attack. on the contrary. represents any state of affairs as a job. which needs analysis and solution. It is doubtless. that the banking construct is the look of the educational subjugation against those who seek creativeness and personal development.

    Decision

    Freire’s work is interesting in footings of clear designation of the issues. which do be in modern-day instruction. Despite the fact that Freire sometimes uses instead extremist footings. his initial purpose was to stand for the current system of instruction as it was. Furthermore. even understanding that we tend to present flexibleness and problem-posing approached into instruction. there is still much to be done in order to wholly extinguish banking attacks in instruction.

    Public Service is Personal JoyImagine spending a year in Taiwan touring the natural beauty of the Jade Mountain and experiencing Taiwanese culture and food. Now imagine doing that while also putting a smile on tons of underprivileged children faces. oesn!t the experience seem worthwhile to you” #r would you rather be sitting in class ta$ing notes” I strongly support the idea that young %mericans should be re&uired to spend at least one year in public service to give bac$ to the community and enhance their own $nowledge.%t first glance’ public service may seem to be a tedious and wasted labor( however there is a bigger picture to mandatory public service which is to give bac$ to the community. )esiding in Montgomery *ounty Public Schools’ I am re&uired to complete seventy+five hours of community service in order to obtain my graduation diploma. Many students argue that the mandatory seventy+five hours of service is far too much. ,owever’ I am highly supportive  because I believe that public service’ whether seventy+five hours or a whole year’ is necessary for young %mericans because of the lifelong lessons and s$ills cultivated by volunteering. Service learning is beneficial to a young %merican!s future career and builds a strong foundation of responsibility.)e&uiring public service teaches young %mericans civic responsibility in order to strengthen communities and enrich the learning of responsibilities for their future. Public service does not only benefit those whom receive the help’ but also the person or people whom perform the sincere act. The opportunity to serve the community gives a chance for students to -apply what theyve learned in the classroom to real human needs/ 0#nline *ollege1. %lthough many argue that re&uiring public service will ta$e too much time out of the already busy lives of young%mericans’ students will be able to use their $nowledge to -better solve problems/0-#nline

    *ollege/1 by applying it in the real world for a good cause. Thus allowing students to also be gain education and critical s$ills used in everyday life. In addition’ by being more aware of the community’ it suggests that young %mericans are more li$ely to become voters because they careabout the fate of their community. Public service also helps create connections between peers to advocate better social interaction and enhances vital s$ills such as leadership for young %mericans. )ather than sitting at home doing homewor$ and watching television’ young %mericans are given the chance to get out of the house and help out a good cause while having a great time. %lso’ students can practice volunteerism with friends. Therefore’ instead of spending time with friends playing video games’students socially interact with one another while volunteering. This promotes greater social interaction as one can also ma$es new friends who share similar experiences with them. )e&uired public service also allows for the learned concept of -volunteering can mean learning to ta$e charge/ 023ari$ #nline1. 4oung %mericans are given the opportunity to strengthen leadership expertise by organi3ing’ communicating’ and collaborating events with peers as a team. %s a result’ young %mericans will be better prepared to tac$le challenges in their lives.4oung %mericans who participate in public service experience different tas$s while giving them the opportunity to search for 5obs they are passionate about’ all the while giving  bac$ to the community. ,ow can volunteering help young %mericans find their passion” 6olunteering can ta$e place in a variety of different forms such as mentoring’ administrative wor$’ office wor$’ arts’ and teaching. 6olunteering for mentoring’ -the opportunity to provide support and friendship to a person who may be going through a difficult period’ is feeling lonely’ or is ad5usting to a ma5or change in their life/ 0-6olunteer Ireland/1′ can lead to a passion in spending time with less fortunate people. ,ence’ one who volunteered to mentor could decide to

     pursue an education in counseling and become a counselor or physical therapist. Students will beable to -experiment with possible career paths/ 07oenig #nline1.)e&uiring public service does not only provide for career selection’ but also influences ones opinion on public policy. % common volunteering act is pic$ing up trash on a local street. 8y doing so’ one could reali3e the importance of the environment and cleaning the environment could become a lifelong hobby and interest. #n a large scale’ the volunteer could 5oin certain interest groups to support the environment such as the Sierra *lub which is -protecting millions of acres of wilderness/ 0-%bout the Sierra *lub/1 as well as
     
    -helping pass the *lean %ir %ct’ *lean 9ater %ct’ and 2ndangered Species %ct./ 0-%bout the Sierra *lub/1 These interest groups influence the passing of certain laws’ therefore by deciding to 5oin( one can help create change insociety. %lso’ this reproduces the fact that public service allows young %mericans to become more responsible and ta$ing charge of their own community.Public service has played an important role in my life( defining who I am as a person. Since I was a child’ I was associated with different non+profit organi3ation and involved in numerous activities to help out the community. I can remember a time when I was very young where I helped pic$ up trash alongside a community road. %t the time’ my short attention span combined with all the wal$ing made me extremely grouchy. I thought it was dumb and boring however my parents constantly forced me to enroll in tons of service activities. uring many of these activities’ I would repeatedly mutter to myself’ -9hy am I doing this” 9hy am I wasting my time”/ In time’ I would discover that I volunteer because it gives me great 5oy and is always worth my time.Through my own experiences’ I have learned that public service is highly beneficial and necessary for all young %mericans. In the beginning’ my parents had to force and encourage me

    50 Best Value Christian MBA Programs 2015

    The value of an MBA education continues to be strong as ever. Full-time MBA graduates typically see an increase in their salary when compared to their earnings before starting business school. Employers continue to target MBA graduates when seeking new hires. The institutions in our ranking not only position their graduates for a significant increase in their salary, but they also equip and train their graduates to integrate their Christian faith into the fast paced and challenging environment they will face upon graduation. We have put together this ranking to help those seeking an intentionally Christian MBA education to further investigate the 50 best Christian MBA programs in the country.

    To produce this ranking we began with schools that have been accredited by one of the following organizations: Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools ( TRACS ) or Council for Christian Colleges and Universities ( CCCU ). In addition to these accrediting bodies, we have also considered members of the Association of Christian Schools International ( ACSI ). If an institution meets this initial criteria, we then narrowed the list down to schools with residential MBA programs. Qualifying schools were then ranked based upon the number of MBA concentrations offered, tuition costs, and special business school accreditation. We assigned a 20% weight to the number of MBA concentrations, 40% to the tuition costs, and 40% to the category of business school accreditation.

    Online MBA Accreditation – What Does it mean? Why is it Important?

    Accreditation refers to a process through which schools, colleges, universities, and other higher education bodies are validated. There are standards that these centers of higher learning must meet in order to receive accreditation, which are set by an authorized accrediting agency. For online MBA programs, accreditation comes from agencies such as AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS. Each of these agencies has a board comprised of faculty members from various educational institutions. This board takes on the responsibility of setting the accreditation standards.

    A college or university is accredited after areas such as the following pass a review by the accrediting body:

    • Overall Mission of the College
    • Objectives and Goals
    • Student Requirements for Admissions
    • Services Available to Students
    • Quality of Education
    • Reputation of Faculty

    Accreditation can make the difference between embarking on an exciting career path or being saddled with debt and worthless college credits.

    When a school or college has passed an accreditation process, it usually means that its degrees will tend to be valued by employers. That is why it is important to make sure that your Master of Business Administration degree and business school have the right accreditation.

    The accreditation process is often a rigorous one. As mentioned above, there are several areas that are assessed and evaluated, including faculty, services, infrastructure, curriculum and various other things. In order to gain the right accreditation, the institute must pass the expected standards in each of the areas evaluated by a certain body. The overall evaluation process takes a long time, so accreditation is usually granted within a period of years. For example, the AACSB’s initial accreditation process takes about three to five years. And accreditation is not a one-time process; it is a continuous evaluation that occurs periodically to ensure that a college or university continually maintains these standards. In order to maintain the accreditation, the institute must prove that it is constantly developing and improving. The idea is to make sure that the institute and its programs remain relevant and adaptable to the ever-changing higher education and business environment.

    Accreditation is a stamp of quality and prestige for a business school and its MBA programs.

    Top Accrediting Bodies

    There are three top agencies that are responsible for accrediting Master of Business Administration programs across the globe. They are:

    1. AACSB

    “AACSB” stands for Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. It is a US and Singapore-based accrediting agency that is responsible for accrediting undergraduate and graduate business programs all over the world. The agency was established in 1919 and has accredited business degrees and schools across more than 40 countries. In 1980, the AACSB started accrediting accounting programs as well. An AACSB accreditation holds a lot of value, ensuring that accredited schools “have the highest-quality faculty, deliver relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools.”1 In fact, less than 5% of the over 16,000 business schools in the world have qualified for accreditation by the AACSB.1 The AACSB conducts an evaluation of a program or school every five years. Only 700 institutions in the world enjoy an AACSB accreditation and 75% of those institutes are in the US.1

    2. AMBA

    The “AMBA” or Association of MBAs is based in London, England. The agency has accredited business programs and schools in more than 49 countries. About 61% of AMBA-accredited MBA programs and business schools are located in Europe. In the US, only 2% of business programs and schools have AMBA accreditation. The AMBA began its operations in the 1980s. The agency is also responsible for accrediting other programs such as DBAs (Doctor of Business Administration) and MBMs (Master of Business and Management). The AMBA evaluates areas such as curriculum, faculty, strategy, assessment methods, and mission. According to AMBA standards, at least 25% of the faculty at a given school should possess a master’s or doctoral degree in a relevant field.

    Accreditation by a national or regional accrediting body creates a gateway for students to participate in more federally funded and state financial aid programs.

    3. EQUIS

    “EQUIS” stands for European Quality Improvement System. It is an accrediting agency operated by the EFMD Management Development Network. EQUIS is responsible for accrediting undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs, especially online MBA programs. The agency evaluates areas such as resources, corporate connections, faculty, governance, programs, research and development, students, and even contributions to the community. Only three schools in the United States are accredited by EQUIS.

    Accreditation and Financial Aid

    As mentioned, pursuing an online MBA program can be very expensive. That’s why most students seek some sort of financial assistance to support their education. The financial assistance can come from a wide range of sources in the form of grants, loans, assistantships, and scholarships.

    Financial aid from federal and state governments have conditions associated with them, one of which is that the school or program must be accredited by a national or regional accrediting agency that is recognized by the US Department of Education. This is yet another reason why accreditation is important. It proves to the government that the institute offers high-quality education to citizens, which is why they are willing to provide financial assistance to students.

    Accreditation organizations evaluate the quality standards of a business school’s teaching, faculty, services, and students, among other things.

    Which Online MBA Program is Right for Me?

    Each year, over 150,000 individuals in the United States alone are awarded traditional campus or accredited online MBA degrees. The receipt of an online MBA marks a momentous occasion in graduates’ lives, as they gear up for a rewarding professional career, one many of them roadmapped years before joining a business school. Almost 90% of online MBA program graduates state that their degree has been beneficial to them. But choosing an online MBA program is not easy; in fact, there are many things to think about before settling for one.

    1. Program Flexibility

    When considering an MBA program, you should look at the duration of each program and the flexibility they offer. Managing a job while pursuing an MBA degree is not easy. If you are a working student, the program should ideally allow you to make changes or adjustments if you need to focus on your career. A lot of schools allow online students to complete an MBA program in three to five years. Having more time to complete your degree will give you more flexibility so that you do not have to compromise your job responsibilities.

    It’s not just the long-term flexibility that matters. You should also consider the everyday flexibility offered by the program, such as whether the online coursework is offered synchronously or asynchronously. Synchronous learning requires students to be present at certain times for lectures, presentations, or class discussions. Asynchronous learning allows students to participate in coursework at their own pace without scheduled lectures or start and stop times. Inherently, asynchronous learning is more flexible than synchronous learning, so it is more conducive to a working professional’s busy schedule.

    2. Interaction with Peers and MBA Faculty

    An MBA program isn’t just about the coursework and skills taught. A solid MBA program also provides learning opportunities through networking, mentoring, and peer interaction. Even online MBA programs should provide a high level of interaction with professors and fellow students. Faculty teaching online programs should be available to students for consultation, and discussion should be facilitated between online students so that they can forge relationships that last beyond graduation.

    3. Access to Business School Resources and Services

    Some schools offering online MBA degrees may compromise on their quality. So when choosing an online MBA, it is necessary to verify that online students have access to the same resources as on-campus students. For example, the faculty should be primarily the same for both the online and on-campus programs. Online students should also receive access to the same services as the on-campus students, including services such as career placement and academic advising.

    4. MBA Accreditation

    Online MBA accreditation is important for any undergraduate or graduate program because many potential employers will place a higher value on accredited programs. The accreditation bodies that are among most widely valued are the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International or AACSB), the Association of MBAs (AMBA), or European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS through the European Foundation for Management Development or EFMD).

    5. Return on Investment (ROI)

    Earning an MBA degree should theoretically help you in your career. While an MBA degree is an investment, think of it as an investment that will offer a direct return for your money. It’s a good idea to understand ahead of time the potential effect an MBA will have on your career so that you can weigh that potential with the upfront cost of the degree. If your new MBA helps you land that promotion you’ve been after, how many years will it take to earn back what you spent on the MBA?

    It is important to choose a program that suits not only your career goals but also your budget.
    When evaluating the ROI, consider the curriculum offered by the program. Make sure it is in line with your career goals and that it focuses on present-day business standards. Compare the online curriculum to the on-campus curriculum to ensure they are similar or the same.

    Tuition and Financial Aid Information

    Pursuing your MBA is an investment in yourself and in your future. Wharton is committed to helping you explore financing options so that you make informed decisions.

    Tuition and Cost Breakdown

    First year budget, 2018-2019

    Tuition and Fees (Includes $2,000 Pre-Term Fee)$78,948
    Room and Board$22,350
    Books and Supplies$1,450
    Transportation$1,040
    Health Insurance, Personal$8,112
    Total$111,900

    Financial Aid

    Wharton strongly encourages you to discuss your financial options with your family or those who may provide support while you attend school to select the financial resources that best fit your needs. Understand that most students rely on multiple funding sources; financing options typically include personal resources, educational loans, external scholarships and sponsorships, and Wharton Fellowships. We encourage you to investigate all sources of funding, including government and private scholarships, prior to borrowing from any loan program. Below are some resources that may offer funding opportunities.

    We do not endorse any specific lender nor do we receive compensation from any lender, and we encourage you to compare the fees and terms of all student loan products to determine which are best suited to your individual needs. Information on loan programs and links to loan applications are available on the Student Financial Services website.

    Loans for U.S. Citizens/Permanent Residents

    Federal Direct and Direct Grad PLUS Loans

    Federal student loans available to graduate/professional students are all unsubsidized loans. Direct Unsubsidized loans will accrue interest while you are in school.

    Federal Direct and Direct GRAD PLUS Loans offer fixed interest rates, low fees, favorable repayment benefits, ease of application, and electronic disbursement of funds directly to your student account.

    Both loan programs require the completion of the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

    Private Alternative Loans

    A number of private lenders and other financial institutions offer education loans for students. These loans are called private alternative loans.

    Private alternative loans are not subsidized, and generally have tiered and fixed interest rates and fees based on your credit score. Cosigners may be required. Unlike Federal Direct and Grad PLUS loans, private loans do not have an income-based cap on monthly repayments. Therefore, we encourage U.S. citizens and permanent residents to first consider the Federal Direct and Direct Grad PLUS loan programs when you need to borrow. You can review a comparison of Grad PLUS and private alternative loans on the Student Financial Services website.

    Loans for International Students

    If you are an International student who is neither a dual U.S. citizen nor a U.S. permanent resident, we encourage you to investigate all sources of funding within your home country, including government and private scholarships and loans.

    Wharton has a new partnership with Quorum Federal Credit Union that will provide a non-cosigned loan product for incoming international students. This loan program does not require a U.S. cosigner, and specific information on this program will be made available to admitted students. Some U.S. banks will also permit international students to borrow through them provided you have a creditworthy U.S. citizen cosigner.

    Note 1: If you are an international student planning to borrow through the International Loan Program with Quorum Federal Credit Union, you will be limited to borrowing up to 80% of the MBA Student Budget for the first and second year of the program.

    Note 2 (OFAC Sanctions): In accordance with mandatory federal regulatory guidelines, students from the United States Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets (OFAC) sanctioned countries are not eligible for the private education line of credit through Quorum Federal Credit Union. If you are an applicant from these countries, please complete a thorough search of funding opportunities to help you with the cost of attendance.

    The John M. Bendheim Loan Forgiveness Fund for Public Service

    Created in 2005 through a grant from the Leon Lowenstein Foundation—at the recommendation of John Bendheim, W’40, and his son Tom, WG/Lauder’90—the John Bendheim Loan Forgiveness Fund for Public Service is designed to encourage Wharton MBA graduates to pursue careers in the public and non-profit sectors. The fund is managed by the Wharton Social Impact Initiative.

    The Loan Forgiveness Award is open to Wharton MBAs during the first five years after graduation. The application process is competitive, and award selection is determined by a team representing Wharton Social Impact Initiative, MBA Career Management, MBA Admissions and Financial Aid, the MBA Program Office, and former recipients of the award.

    Eligible candidates must pursue careers in the public and non-profit sectors (and work for organizations recognized by the IRS as tax-exempt under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code). The awards are based on a combination of activity, career goals, and financial need.

    If selected for this program, we will send up to $20,000 per year to your lenders to pay down your loans. There is no limit to the number of times an alumnus/alumna may be chosen as a recipient during the first five years following graduation.

    Please visit the  Wharton Social Impact Initiative (WSII) to learn more about the application process for the Loan Forgiveness Fund for Public Service.

    Financial Aid FAQs

    What is the current cost of the Wharton MBA Program?

    Tuition and living expenses for first-year students for the academic year of August 2017 – May 2018 is $109,450.

    Is funding available for my MBA?

    Yes. MBA students typically finance their educations through a combination of educational loans, fellowships, and scholarships. These are available through external sources or Wharton.

    How do I learn about my financing options?

    Information on financing options is available through the Wharton MBA Program website and through Student Financial Services .

    How are fellowships awarded?

    All admitted students are considered for fellowship support at the time of admission. There is no separate fellowship application. Wharton fellowships are merit based. Criteria for selection may include academic achievement, compelling leadership, exceptional professional development, and unique personal qualities. If you are selected for a fellowship, you will be notified within your admissions and financial aid letter.

    How will I be notified if I am chosen to receive a fellowship?

    If you are selected for a fellowship, you will be notified within your admission decision letter. You will also receive the financial aid Fellowship and Cost of Attendance Letters that detail the amount of the fellowship you have been awarded and loans you are eligible to borrow. This will be sent via email shortly after you receive your admission decision. If you are not chosen for a fellowship, the Cost of Attendance Letter will only reflect your loan eligibility for the upcoming year.

    Are there any other outside sources that I should consider?

    You should also consider any organizations to which you belong that might provide aid, such as: religious organizations, fraternal organizations, clubs, athletics, veteran groups, ethnic groups, unions, employers, Rotary clubs, and charitable foundations.

    Are grants or fellowships taxable?

    The Tax Reform Act of 1986 states that grant assistance is taxable income to the extent that it exceeds tuition, required education fees, and course-related expenses. Course-related expenses are those for books, supplies, and equipment required for your courses. For non-resident aliens, the University is required to withhold federal income tax on grants received in excess of the expenses described above.

    What do I need to know about educational loans?

    The University of Pennsylvania offers information on several educational financing programs to assist students in meeting their educational expenses. These programs include Federal Direct Loans, Federal Direct Grad PLUS Loans, and alternative private loan programs. Please visit the Student Financial Service (SFS) website for more information.

    Are credit cards accepted for my tuition payments?

    The University of Pennsylvania allows online payment of tuition through an American Express card. There is a 2% convenience fee for students who choose this option. The fee is reflected in your American Express billing statement. Please visit the Student Financial Services (SFS) website for more information.

    The Global Immersion Program (GIP) and Global Modular Courses (GMC) are not included in Whartons student budget. Will the University provide funding to cover these expenses?

    The director of the Global Immersion Program submits an official Participants List to Wharton’s Financial Aid Office. The student budget may be increased to make students eligible for additional loans to cover the cost of these programs.

    Are teaching and research assistantships available to students?

    MBA students are occasionally able to obtain a teaching or research assistantship through one of Wharton’s academic departments, research centers, or administrative offices. Time commitment and remuneration vary with the position. Qualified students should contact the department(s) of their choice directly. You are not limited to the Wharton School in your search for an assistantship. Your skills and expertise may be attractive to other schools within the University.

    It seems like a simple choice: if you can complete an Executive MBA program in 12 months, why follow a course of study that takes 22 months?

    There are the obvious considerations: more time, more money—both in the form of tuition and time spent away from your desk at your actual, day job. But the considerations are, in fact, a bit less clear when weighed.

    Top Tier

    First and foremost, if you’re looking to crack the top-tier business schools for your Executive MBA program, note that none of them offer anything less than a 19-month long course of study in a traditional nights and weekends format. The fact that the top schools by-and-large do not support a shorter course of study hints that a speedy EMBA might very well not be the shortest path to longer term success.

    Chicago’s Booth school’s Executive MBA program clocks in at 21 months. Wharton’s program can be competed in 24 months and includes the same number of class hours (700+) as a full time MBA. Kellogg gives students the option of studying in monthly or bi-monthly course intervals in either Evanston or Miami—either way, it’ll be two years to finish your Executive MBA. Columbia’s weekend Executive MBA program also runs 24 months.

    The Fuqua School at Duke gives EMBA applicants some options for program length. If you participate in the Global Executive MBA—which includes both online learning and international travel—you can earn your degree in a mere 15 months. But it’ll cost you: the program runs upwards of $166,000—so shorter is not necessarily cheaper . The school’s more traditionally structured weekend EMBA program clocks in at 19 months in duration but costs substantially less at $122,500.

    Perhaps the top-ranked and shortest Executive MBA program is that of the MIT Sloan Fellows. However, this is not an option for executives trying to balance a shorter program with their day job—it’s a full-time, 12-month program that’s intended for “executives who want an opportunity to step away from their working lives and immerse themselves in an intense, transformative experience,” according to the MIT website. For those who cannot take a year off from their current positions, MIT offers a more traditionally-structured EMBA in 20-months.

    Trading brand recognition for time 

    If time frame is a non-negotiable factor for selecting an Executive MBA program, note well that you may have to trade off some brand recognition given that the top programs will not offer such a compressed degree.

    “There’s a prestige transference,” says Gayle Rigione, Director of Strategic Development for IvyExec. “Would you rather drive a Maserati or a Fiat? Most people will want the Maserati. But you can drive the Fiat. It’ll get you to your destination but it won’t necessarily have people racing to open a door for you.” 

    If you don’t feel that having access to the first class education, alumni connections and brand name recognition of a top-ranked school are as important as completing your program expediently, there are several schools that will cater to your need for speed.

    The Executive MBA program at Kansas City’s Benedictine College was one of the first to create a one-year trajectory for students on the fast track. The University of Toledo’s business school also has a 12-month track that meets on campus for only one weekend a month and even includes an international trip despite its compressed time frame.

    The Harvard Exception 

    Harvard Business School has a different tactic—one that bestows prestige if you’re in a hurry and can get accepted into the program. The school calls the Program for Leadership Development (PLD) an alternative to the Executive MBA or a “rapid-fire MBA”. Each program has a specific focus—ranging from topics in health care management to leading and transforming family businesses in China—and range in length from a few weeks to seven months.

    “Unlike an eMBA, PLD is tailored to your unique needs and leadership challenges,” the program’s website says. “One-on-one coaching, living groups, personal strategy projects, practical application, and a faculty composed of full-time HBS professors are hallmarks of this intensive program.”

    Of course, you’ll walk away from the program with the Harvard name attached to your resume—although you will not receive an EMBA degree. Then again, you’ll also have access to one of the world’s most respected alumni networks which might prove to be more valuable than any degree.

    Essays of Michel de Montaigne

    An essay is, generally, a piece of writing that gives the author’s own argument — but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of a paper , an article , a pamphlet , and a short story . Essays have traditionally been sub-classified as formal and informal. Formal essays are characterized by “serious purpose, dignity, logical organization, length,” whereas the informal essay is characterized by “the personal element (self-revelation, individual tastes and experiences, confidential manner), humor, graceful style, rambling structure, unconventionality or novelty of theme,” etc. [1]

    Essays are commonly used as literary criticism , political manifestos , learned arguments , observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose , but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g., Alexander Pope ‘s An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man ). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke ‘s An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus ‘s An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples.

    In some countries (e.g., the United States and Canada), essays have become a major part of formal education . Secondary students are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills; admission essays are often used by universities in selecting applicants, and in the humanities and social sciences essays are often used as a way of assessing the performance of students during final exams.

    The concept of an “essay” has been extended to other media beyond writing. A film essay is a movie that often incorporates documentary filmmaking styles and focuses more on the evolution of a theme or idea. A photographic essay covers a topic with a linked series of photographs that may have accompanying text or captions .

    Definitions

    John Locke ‘s 1690 An Essay Concerning Human Understanding .

    An essay has been defined in a variety of ways. One definition is a “prose composition with a focused subject of discussion” or a “long, systematic discourse”. [2]
    It is difficult to define the genre into which essays fall. Aldous Huxley , a leading essayist, gives guidance on the subject. [3] He notes that “the essay is a literary device for saying almost everything about almost anything”, and adds that “by tradition, almost by definition, the essay is a short piece”. Furthermore, Huxley argues that “essays belong to a literary species whose extreme variability can be studied most effectively within a three-poled frame of reference”.
    These three poles (or worlds in which the essay may exist) are:

    • The personal and the autobiographical: The essayists that feel most comfortable in this pole “write fragments of reflective autobiography and look at the world through the keyhole of anecdote and description”.
    • The objective, the factual, and the concrete particular: The essayists that write from this pole “do not speak directly of themselves, but turn their attention outward to some literary or scientific or political theme. Their art consists of setting forth, passing judgment upon, and drawing general conclusions from the relevant data”.
    • The abstract-universal: In this pole “we find those essayists who do their work in the world of high abstractions”, who are never personal and who seldom mention the particular facts of experience.

    Huxley adds that the most satisfying essays “…make the best not of one, not of two, but of all the three worlds in which it is possible for the essay to exist.”

    The word essay derives from the French infinitive essayer, “to try” or “to attempt”. In English essay first meant “a trial” or “an attempt”, and this is still an alternative meaning. The Frenchman Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592) was the first author to describe his work as essays; he used the term to characterize these as “attempts” to put his thoughts into writing, and his essays grew out of his commonplacing . [4] Inspired in particular by the works of Plutarch , a translation of whose Œuvres Morales (Moral works) into French had just been published by Jacques Amyot , Montaigne began to compose his essays in 1572; the first edition, entitled Essais , was published in two volumes in 1580. For the rest of his life, he continued revising previously published essays and composing new ones. Francis Bacon ‘s essays , published in book form in 1597, 1612, and 1625, were the first works in English that described themselves as essays. Ben Jonson first used the word essayist in English in 1609, according to the Oxford English Dictionary .

    Europe

    English essayists included Robert Burton (1577–1641) and Sir Thomas Browne (1605–1682). In France, Michel de Montaigne ‘s three volume Essais in the mid 1500s contain over 100 examples widely regarded as the predecessor of the modern essay. In Italy, Baldassare Castiglione wrote about courtly manners in his essay Il Cortigiano. In the 17th century, the Jesuit Baltasar Gracián wrote about the theme of wisdom. [5] During the Age of Enlightenment , essays were a favored tool of polemicists who aimed at convincing readers of their position; they also featured heavily in the rise of periodical literature , as seen in the works of Joseph Addison , Richard Steele and Samuel Johnson . In the 18th and 19th centuries, Edmund Burke and Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote essays for the general public. The early 19th century, in particular, saw a proliferation of great essayists in English – William Hazlitt , Charles Lamb , Leigh Hunt and Thomas de Quincey all penned numerous essays on diverse subjects. In the 20th century, a number of essayists tried to explain the new movements in art and culture by using essays (e.g., T.S. Eliot ). Whereas some essayists used essays for strident political themes, Robert Louis Stevenson and Willa Cather wrote lighter essays. Virginia Woolf , Edmund Wilson , and Charles du Bos wrote literary criticism essays. [5]

    Japan

    Main article: Zuihitsu

    As with the novel , essays existed in Japan several centuries before they developed in Europe with a genre of essays known as zuihitsu — loosely connected essays and fragmented ideas. Zuihitsu have existed since almost the beginnings of Japanese literature. Many of the most noted early works of Japanese literature are in this genre. Notable examples include The Pillow Book (c. 1000), by court lady Sei Shōnagon , and Tsurezuregusa (1330), by particularly renowned Japanese Buddhist monk Yoshida Kenkō . Kenkō described his short writings similarly to Montaigne, referring to them as “nonsensical thoughts” written in “idle hours”. Another noteworthy difference from Europe is that women have traditionally written in Japan, though the more formal, Chinese-influenced writings of male writers were more prized at the time.

    Forms and styles

    This section describes the different forms and styles of essay writing. These forms and styles are used by an array of authors, including university students and professional essayists .

    Cause and effect

    The defining features of a “cause and effect” essay are causal chains that connect from a cause to an effect, careful language, and chronological or emphatic order. A writer using this rhetorical method must consider the subject , determine the purpose , consider the audience , think critically about different causes or consequences, consider a thesis statement, arrange the parts, consider the language , and decide on a conclusion. [6]

    Classification and division

    Classification is the categorization of objects into a larger whole while division is the breaking of a larger whole into smaller parts. [7]

    Compare and contrast

    Compare and contrast essays are characterized by a basis for comparison, points of comparison, and analogies. It is grouped by the object (chunking) or by point (sequential). The comparison highlights the similarities between two or more similar objects while contrasting highlights the differences between two or more objects. When writing a compare/contrast essay, writers need to determine their purpose, consider their audience, consider the basis and points of comparison, consider their thesis statement, arrange and develop the comparison, and reach a conclusion. Compare and contrast is arranged emphatically. [8]

    Descriptive

    Descriptive writing is characterized by sensory details, which appeal to the physical senses, and details that appeal to a reader’s emotional, physical, or intellectual sensibilities. Determining the purpose, considering the audience, creating a dominant impression, using descriptive language, and organizing the description are the rhetorical choices to consider when using a description. A description is usually arranged spatially but can also be chronological or emphatic. The focus of a description is the scene. Description uses tools such as denotative language, connotative language, figurative language , metaphor , and simile to arrive at a dominant impression. [9] One university essay guide states that “descriptive writing says what happened or what another author has discussed; it provides an account of the topic”. [10]
    Lyric essays are an important form of descriptive essays.

    Dialectic

    In the dialectic form of the essay, which is commonly used in philosophy , the writer makes a thesis and argument, then objects to their own argument (with a counterargument), but then counters the counterargument with a final and novel argument. This form benefits from presenting a broader perspective while countering a possible flaw that some may present. This type is sometimes called an ethics paper. [11]

    Exemplification

    An exemplification essay is characterized by a generalization and relevant, representative, and believable examples including anecdotes . Writers need to consider their subject, determine their purpose, consider their audience, decide on specific examples, and arrange all the parts together when writing an exemplification essay. [12]

    Malthus’ Essay on the Principle of Population

    Familiar

    An essayist writes a familiar essay if speaking to a single reader, writing about both themselves, and about particular subjects. Anne Fadiman notes that “the genre’s heyday was the early nineteenth century,” and that its greatest exponent was Charles Lamb . [13] She also suggests that while critical essays have more brain than the heart, and personal essays have more heart than brain, familiar essays have equal measures of both. [14]

    History (thesis)

    A history essay sometimes referred to as a thesis essay describes an argument or claim about one or more historical events and supports that claim with evidence, arguments, and references. The text makes it clear to the reader why the argument or claim is as such. [15]

    Narrative

    A narrative uses tools such as flashbacks , flash-forwards , and transitions that often build to a climax. The focus of a narrative is the plot . When creating a narrative, authors must determine their purpose, consider their audience, establish their point of view, use dialogue, and organize the narrative. A narrative is usually arranged chronologically. [16]

    Argumentative

    An argumentative essay is a critical piece of writing, aimed at presenting objective analysis of the subject matter, narrowed down to a single topic. The main idea of all the criticism is to provide an opinion either of positive or negative implication. As such, a critical essay requires research and analysis, strong internal logic and sharp structure. Its structure normally builds around introduction with a topic’s relevance and a thesis statement , body paragraphs with arguments linking back to the main thesis, and conclusion. In addition, an argumentative essay may include a refutation section where conflicting ideas are acknowledged, described, and criticized. Each argument of argumentative essay should be supported with sufficient evidence, relevant to the point.

    Economic

    An economic essay can start with a thesis, or it can start with a theme. It can take a narrative course and a descriptive course. It can even become an argumentative essay if the author feels the need. After the introduction, the author has to do his/her best to expose the economic matter at hand, to analyze it, evaluate it, and draw a conclusion. If the essay takes more of a narrative form then the author has to expose each aspect of the economic puzzle in a way that makes it clear and understandable for the reader

    Reflective

    A reflective essay is an analytical piece of writing in which the writer describes a real or imaginary scene, event, interaction, passing thought, memory, or form — adding a personal reflection on the meaning of the topic in the author’s life. Thus, the focus is not merely descriptive. The writer doesn’t just describe the situation, but revisits the scene with more detail and emotion to examine what went well, or reveal a need for additional learning — and may relate what transpired to the rest of the author’s life.

    Other logical structures

    The logical progression and organizational structure of an essay can take many forms. Understanding how the movement of thought is managed through an essay has a profound impact on its overall cogency and ability to impress. A number of alternative logical structures for essays have been visualized as diagrams, making them easy to implement or adapt in the construction of an argument. [17]

    Academic

    University students , like these students doing research at a university library, are often assigned essays as a way to get them to analyze what they have read.

    Main article: Free response

    In countries like the United States and the United Kingdom , essays have become a major part of a formal education in the form of free response questions. Secondary students in these countries are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills, and essays are often used by universities in these countries in selecting applicants (see admissions essay ). In both secondary and tertiary education, essays are used to judge the mastery and comprehension of the material. Students are asked to explain, comment on, or assess a topic of study in the form of an essay. In some courses, university students must complete one or more essays over several weeks or months. In addition, in fields such as the humanities and social sciences,[ citation needed ] mid-term and end of term examinations often require students to write a short essay in two or three hours.

    In these countries, so-called academic essays also called papers, are usually more formal than literary ones.[ citation needed ] They may still allow the presentation of the writer’s own views, but this is done in a logical and factual manner, with the use of the first person often discouraged. Longer academic essays (often with a word limit of between 2,000 and 5,000 words)[ citation needed ] are often more discursive. They sometimes begin with a short summary analysis of what has previously been written on a topic, which is often called a literature review .[ citation needed ]

    Longer essays may also contain an introductory page that defines words and phrases of the essay’s topic. Most academic institutions require that all substantial facts, quotations, and other supporting material in an essay be referenced in a bibliography or works cited page at the end of the text. This scholarly convention helps others (whether teachers or fellow scholars) to understand the basis of facts and quotations the author uses to support the essay’s argument and helps readers evaluate to what extent the argument is supported by evidence, and to evaluate the quality of that evidence. The academic essay tests the student’s ability to present their thoughts in an organized way and is designed to test their intellectual capabilities.

    One of the challenges facing universities is that in some cases, students may submit essays purchased from an essay mill (or “paper mill”) as their own work. An “essay mill” is a ghostwriting service that sells pre-written essays to university and college students. Since plagiarism is a form of academic dishonesty or academic fraud , universities and colleges may investigate papers they suspect are from an essay mill by using plagiarism detection software, which compares essays against a database of known mill essays and by orally testing students on the contents of their papers. [18]

    Magazine or newspaper

    Main article: Long-form journalism

    Essays often appear in magazines, especially magazines with an intellectual bent, such as The Atlantic and Harpers . Magazine and newspaper essays use many of the essay types described in the section on forms and styles (e.g., descriptive essays, narrative essays, etc.). Some newspapers also print essays in the op-ed section.

    An 1895 cover of Harpers , a US magazine that prints a number of essays per issue.

    Employment

    Employment essays detailing experience in a certain occupational field are required when applying for some jobs, especially government jobs in the United States. Essays known as Knowledge Skills and Executive Core Qualifications are required when applying to certain US federal government positions.

    A KSA, or “Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities,” is a series of narrative statements that are required when applying to Federal government job openings in the United States. KSAs are used along with resumes to determine who the best applicants are when several candidates qualify for a job. The knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for the successful performance of a position are contained on each job vacancy announcement. KSAs are brief and focused essays about one’s career and educational background that presumably qualify one to perform the duties of the position being applied for.

    An Executive Core Qualification, or ECQ, is a narrative statement that is required when applying to Senior Executive Service positions within the US Federal government. Like the KSAs, ECQs are used along with resumes to determine who the best applicants are when several candidates qualify for a job. The Office of Personnel Management has established five executive core qualifications that all applicants seeking to enter the Senior Executive Service must demonstrate.

    Non-literary types

    Film

    A film essay (or “cinematic essay”) consists of the evolution of a theme or an idea rather than a plot per se, or the film literally being a cinematic accompaniment to a narrator reading an essay.[ citation needed ] From another perspective, an essay film could be defined as a documentary film visual basis combined with a form of commentary that contains elements of self-portrait (rather than autobiography), where the signature (rather than the life story) of the filmmaker is apparent. The cinematic essay often blends documentary , fiction , and experimental film making using tones and editing styles. [19]

    The genre is not well-defined but might include propaganda works of early Soviet parliamentarians like Dziga Vertov , present-day filmmakers including Chris Marker , [20] Michael Moore ( Roger & Me (1989), Bowling for Columbine (2002) and Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)), Errol Morris ( The Thin Blue Line (1988)), Morgan Spurlock ( Supersize Me: A Film of Epic Portions ) and Agnès Varda . Jean-Luc Godard describes his recent work as “film-essays”. [21] Two filmmakers whose work was the antecedent to the cinematic essay include Georges Méliès and Bertolt Brecht . Méliès made a short film ( The Coronation of Edward VII (1902)) about the 1902 coronation of King Edward VII , which mixes actual footage with shots of a recreation of the event. Brecht was a playwright who experimented with film and incorporated film projections into some of his plays. [19] Orson Welles made an essay film in his own pioneering style, released in 1974, called F for Fake , which dealt specifically with art forger Elmyr de Hory and with the themes of deception, “fakery,” and authenticity in general. These are often published online on video hosting services . [22] [23]

    David Winks Gray’s article “The essay film in action” states that the “essay film became an identifiable form of filmmaking in the 1950s and ’60s”. He states that since that time, essay films have tended to be “on the margins” of the filmmaking the world. Essay films have a “peculiar searching, questioning tone … between documentary and fiction” but without “fitting comfortably” into either genre. Gray notes that just like written essays, essay films “tend to marry the personal voice of a guiding narrator (often the director) with a wide swath of other voices”. [24] The University of Wisconsin Cinematheque website echoes some of Gray’s comments; it calls a film essay an “intimate and allusive” genre that “catches filmmakers in a pensive mood, ruminating on the margins between fiction and documentary” in a manner that is “refreshingly inventive, playful, and idiosyncratic”. [25]

    Music

    In the realm of music , composer Samuel Barber wrote a set of “Essays for Orchestra,” relying on the form and content of the music to guide the listener’s ear, rather than any extra-musical plot or story .

    Photography

    “After School Play Interrupted by the Catch and Release of a Stingray” is a simple time-sequence photo essay .

    A photographic essay strives to cover a topic with a linked series of photographs . Photo essays range from purely photographic works to photographs with captions or small notes to full-text essays with a few or many accompanying photographs. Photo essays can be sequential in nature, intended to be viewed in a particular order — or they may consist of non-ordered photographs viewed all at once or in an order that the viewer chooses. All photo essays are collections of photographs, but not all collections of photographs are photo essays. Photo essays often address a certain issue or attempt to capture the character of places and events.

    Visual arts

    In the visual arts , an essay is a preliminary drawing or sketch that forms a basis for a final painting or sculpture, made as a test of the work’s composition (this meaning of the term, like several of those following, comes from the word essayJA’s meaning of “attempt” or “trial”).

Already introduced a couple of years ago in our Human Resources department, CUNYfirst at College of Staten Island will change the way that students register for classes and pay their bills, and that faculty members view class rosters, verify enrollment and post their grades.
