CAEX 6101 - Critical Thinking for Social Change


(1 sem. cr.) In this 6-week course, students become writer-advocates of a social change issue of their choosing. They use critical thinking to analyze the issue, acknowledge complexities, and research a potential solution. Students also learn techniques for argumentative writing in support of their proposed change. These techniques include gathering evidence, examining the validity of that evidence, and constructing a thesis statement. By the end of the course, students will have gained confidence in their voice and their place in the conversation surrounding the social change issue. This course could be helpful to master’s or doctoral students who are about to begin their capstone and would like a jumpstart on topic selection and initial writing. Note: This course is for semester-based graduate-level students.
