In order to succeed at graduate-level work, students must be able to effectively analyze texts, make rational arguments about them using textual and other evidence, differentiate between personal and academic voice, use proper citation practices, and be familiar with academic standards of evidence. Students will gain an introduction to Pagan Studies, and questions confronting that field, and will learn tools for conducting research. Additionally, the course covers conventions of academic essay-writing and prepares students to engage in a mature and sophisticated fashion with theological and religious studies texts which will guide them in a research project ending with a final paper.
