Critical Thinking

PHI3000 Critical Thinking (3)

The skills of persuasion are discussed and practiced in an interactive format. Critical thinking skills are developed through learning to ask questions; developing fact, value and policy claims; establishing propositions; discovering evidence based on applied fields (such as economics, law, or medicine); and logic and reasoning. In addition to preparing speeches, students participate in discussions based on cooperative rather than competitive argumentation to reach potential solutions. (Prerequisite: junior standing) (Online)
