    What course? A course in 'critical thinking'?

    I suppose each course depends on the instructor. Do you have a syllabus?

    One could search google on "Critical thinking" or "Critical","Thinking" or "Critical","Thinking","Course".

    I had a Grade 5 teacher who taught us (her students) about "thinking" and "reasoning", and concepts like deductive reasoning and inductive logic.

    It will be different from university to university. The class I took with that name was a philosophy course centered on how to argue correctly. We dealt with basic controversial issues abortion, suicide, euthanasia, global activism, and other such issues.

    In the end I did not get much from the class. Most of the people were no horrible interested in the class in the first place. The teacher was a grad student in philosophy and did a really good job lecturing, which made the class enjoyable if not horribly educational.
