PHI 10 Critical Thinking

Students taking this course will learn reasoning techniques so they develop their skills at argumentation, spotting fallacious reasoning examining uses of language, evaluating reasoning examining assumptions, weighing evidence determining credibility of witnesses, problem solving, decision-making, and applying critical thinking skills to moral reasoning, advertising the media, and legal reasoning. This course carries credit equivalent to PHI 5 GS-II, VB3. PHI 10 is also designated as QL1, thus grants three units as GS-VIIA. Note: Effective Fall 2014 students can get GS credit for only one, PHI 5 or PHI 10--not both.
