REA 2205 - Critical Thinking Reading and Global Perspectives

Credit Hours: 3.0

Prerequisite(s): None

This is a course designed to help students analyze their personal cognitive and implicit biases, perceptions, and beliefs. Students develop an awareness of specific attitudes, processes, and applications of thinking central to comprehending and communicating ideas, solving problems, and making decisions at home and abroad. Students develop skills in analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information by asking probing questions and drawing logical conclusions with improved accuracy and fair-mindedness. We will examine academic arguments, inferences, propaganda, and many current topics with global implications. Reading material is from the class text, current media, and supplemental material covering international issues. These critical thinking habits are necessary for future interpersonal relationships, academic studies, and successful employment. Suggested Prerequisites are ENC1101 as there will be many written assignments, and College level work is required. College computing CGS1000 is recommended. Computer skills are necessary.
