Stephen Beck

In this course, students will learn techniques of formal deductive reasoning. We will study a system of first-order logic, in which students will evaluate formal arguments for validity and construct proofs of valid arguments. In addition, we will examine other forms of analytical reasoning, of the sort that typically appear on standardized tests often required for admission to graduate programs. This course is appropriate both for students wanting to build a foundation of critical thinking skills and those seeking to hone their reasoning skills in preparation for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level study. 

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:

any area that requires strong formal reasoning skills.
