Course Objectives This course aims to teach students the skills and techniques necessary for writing academic papers. Students will learn how to conduct academic research, how to bring together their own ideas and arguments with secondary sources, and how to quote, paraphrase, summarize and give citations from other works and, most importantly, how to do all of these without committing plagiarism. All of these skills will initially be introduced theoretically to the students, after which they will be expected to apply them by writing an academic paper.
