Comments
This course is a writing-intensive undergraduate seminar-style course designed to provide detailed guidance in the construction of philosophical essays. Developing this skill is of central importance to anyone interested in serious work in philosophy, but is useful for anyone in disciplines or trades that seek written work with clearly articulated argumentative structure. We will work through all the parts of the philosophical essay, from the title to the bibliography, in discrete sections, before combining them in complete essays. This will take us through the full process of developing a paper, from research to presentation, and onto final revisions. Final papers will be prepared for blind review, with an eye to submission to an undergraduate journal of philosophy. The final paper will be uploaded to your ePortfolio. AT LEAST ONE PHILOSOPHY COURSE 200 LEVEL OR HIGHTER (more than one prior philosophy course is recommended).
Enrollment Requirements
Prerequisites: Pre-Requisite: Completion of at least two (2) prior courses in Philosophy, and either ENG 101 or 105. This course satisfies the Communication Literacy 2 (CL2) requirement, and is highly recommended for Humanities majors.
