Comments on the course

Pretty useful course. It teaches you communication skills like how to write a cover letter, a research paper, and a business proposal. For important assignments, the professor really puts in a lot of effort and gives you good feedback. Very light in terms of content, most of the work comes from research and assignments. No midterms or exams, just several major assignments.

Advice

Don't leave assignments to the last minute, as these assignments can take a lot of time to do. If you're not good at writing, or if your English is not that great, then consider reaching out to your classmates for help as English reading/writing/speaking will be everything you do.
