COR3100 Critical Thinking and Writing

Course Description

Focuses on academic essay writing, rhetorical analysis, and critical thinking; designed particularly to help upper-division students craft better academic essays. Students work on the organization, mechanics, and coherence of their writing and build greater confidence in their ability to write. Students also discuss and practice the fundamental tools of critical thinking, analyze rhetorical devices and targeted audiences of different texts, and attempt to apply their understanding to their own expression. The course helps students examine thesis, types of evidence, and counter arguments as well as movements between concrete and abstract, personal and universal. Each quarter, the course will be organized around a different interdisciplinary theme. This course is offered in hybrid format.
