Teaching method

The sessions corresponding to points 1 and 2 of the Syllabus are more expository, consisting in lectures given by the teacher and always having at the end a general discussion of the presented material.
The sessions corresponding to paragraph 3 of the syllabus will be of the students initiative and will consist in the presentation and discussion of ´papers´ to rehearse the application of theories and techniques presented to real argumentative contexts (media, political, financial, public health, etc.) chosen by the students.

Evauation: Each student will make an oral examination on points 1 and 2 of the program and will write a paper for point 3, the paper will be presented and discussed in the seminar.
