The course aims to enable students to acquire, at a high level, the use of analysing tools in argumentation theory and logic (formal and informal), and to make them able to consciously apply these tools throughout their oral and written communication. In addition to improving analysing skills, the course focuses on methods of argumentation design, and the increase of argumentative practice, Those complex discursive situations are analysed that require the strategic integration of arguments.
