Academic Writing in English
7.5 ECTS credits
The course is focused on academic writing in English in different academic contexts. Throughout the course, students produce academic text types such as literature reviews, summaries, and article abstracts. In all kinds of text production, students practise using a given referencing system correctly for in-text citations and reference lists. Students also read research on scholarly writing and use it as material for discussion and reflection concerning academic text production. Active reading skills are emphasised and practised, with the purpose to identify the different parts of the academic text and the way in which they are interrelated.
