This subject aims to instruct the student as to how to compose an academic text with a content which is effective, well-organised and grammatically correct. In order to do this, the steps of the composition process are analysed: planning, transcription and reviewing through the use of strategies which facilitate the production of well-constructed texts according to the type of genre to be achieved (research, dissemination, MA dissertation, etc.). The language (vocabulary, syntax, grammar) specific to academic texts will also be analysed, taking into consideration non-discriminatory uses as well as relevant rhetorical functions and differentiating features specific to the area of study (linguistics, medicine, tourism, economics, law, etc.). To this aim, diverse texts belonging to a variety of disciplines will be used, so as to show the relevant structures and most recurrent vocabulary.
