Course Syllabus

Abstract

Academic Writing Argumentation skills course is designed specifically for the parallel degree program in International Affairs to advance the skills of oral and written argumentation. This class builds on the genre distinction of oral public speaking with rhetorical strategies and persuasion techniques from the academic essay with the formal language and structure. The class activities engage students in debate participation, which serves as a groundwork for the essay writing. Special attention is given to the multi-stakeholder debates, which require the understanding of counter-arguments and limitations.
