Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The Art of Argument course will:
(a) help students identify arguments other social science scholars make,
(b) help students develop their own argument in the context the work of other scholars,
(c) help students effectively and efficiently identify scholarly resources appropriate for a literature review,
(d) help students evaluate the reliability of sources,
(e) help students to integrate multiple sources into a literature review,
(f) help students advance your English skills in reading, writing, presenting, and discussing sociological issues

In this course, students will practice critical thinking, sociological reasoning, and argumentation, using English texts. Students will identify and evaluate arguments other writers have made. The reading material will provide considerable insights and methods to gain an understanding of the written work that sociologists and other social scientists produce. Using the reading material, as well as other academic texts, students will develop sociological arguments. The course work will focus on writing an argumentative paper, that either analyzes, or/and extends the work of other social scientists. Finally, students will use the many scholarly resources available to them to help research and write their arguments and literature reviews.
