Course Syllabus

Abstract

The 2-nd year course is aimed to revise, expand and develop the academic skills outlined in the 1st year syllabus. The purpose of it is to equip students with the skills necessary for conducting research and producing a piece of extended writing (project) in their own subject-specific area. The course involves an integrated approach, with a particular focus on the writing and research skills necessary for such a task. The course is designed to encourage critical thinking and get students to be evaluative in their approach to writing. There is also a strong oral component to the course through discussion of the students’ work in classrooms, and a final conference at the end of the course when they present their work.
