Inhoud vak

This course revolves around understanding and identifying political
science literature. Scientific texts differ from other texts in the way
arguments are put forward and sources are used and justified. Within
this course, we deal with questions such as: what does the structure of
a scientific text look like? How can scientific texts be distinguished
from non-scientific texts on the same issue? What makes a text
scientifically convincing? Dealing with scientific literature, reading
comprehension and correct writing of scientific texts are basic skills
that students must master in order to successfully complete the
Political Science: Global Politics programme.

The skills taught during ASL-POL-1
are broadened and applied during ASL-POL-2
