ACAD 2701 allows students to cultivate foundational skills in research writing in the Social Sciences. Research Writing in the Social Sciences allows students to discern, define, understand and execute the reading and writing conventions specific to research writing in the disciplines. With an aim towards posing and answering a research question suitable for study in the field, students learn and practice the methodologies that allow them to establish a clear, logical, arguable, manageable and compelling thesis/hypothesis and argument/project. To this end, students develop skills in academic inquiry, research methods, information literacy, documentation style, analysis, effective writing and argumentation directly related to study in the field.
