In an age fraught with deception and misinformation, students need tactics and strategies in order to separate truth from falsity. This course encourages its participants to act as skeptics — not cynics, necessarily — by requiring evidence and proof before believing or accepting claims. Students are urged to identify the most-likely-to-occur opportunities for deception in their major fields and draw from the tenets of classical rhetoric, logic and the scientific method in order to develop safeguards.
This course will not require students to purchase books/materials.
Faculty will contact all students after the Monday, December 12, registration deadline.
