Help with your writing?

In the study of Political Science, particular weight is placed on the student's capacity to produce critical review and presentation of scientific texts, both orally and in writing. The structure for best achieving this varies between different disciplines, as well as between different tutors/researchers. The art of writing and speaking is a normative user's guide on all levels in the Political Science discipline, not least in conjunction with thesis writing.
