Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking

This course introduces the use of critical thinking skills in the context of human conflict. Emphasis is placed on evaluating information, problem-solving, approaching cross-cultural perspectives, and resolving controversies and dilemmas. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate orally and write the use of critical thinking skills in the analysis of appropriate texts. This course has been approved to satisfy the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement general education core requirement in humanities/fine arts. This course may meet the SACS humanities requirement for AAS degree programs. HUM115 is a 100% online course-that is, we will not meet face-to-face in the classroom, but if students need help, arrangements can be made via Instant Messaging, Video Chat, or telephone.
