Objectives and learning outcomes of the course
The principal objective of this course is to equip students with the analytical skills needed to undertake theoretical, empirical and comparative courses in the second and third years of their degree programme. These analytical skills will be developed through the study and discussion of excellent examples of political argument.
By the end of the year students will have developed their abilities to develop clear and concise arguments and to present these coherently through writing and speech.
