This module is designed to equip students with higher order critical thinking skills that enable them to question assumptions that lie behind written texts. The module will further equip them with skills required for analytical thinking. It is important to prepare students to interpret texts independently and reflect in a mature manner on theories and ideologies that underlie academic texts that represent complex schools of thought. It is necessary that students learn to form a balanced and well-informed opinion on issues where a keen sense of reserve and responsibility is required to be cultivated through close and in-depth reading.
