Course Description:

This is an advanced academic writing skills course that aims to enhance students’ writing abilities in academic contexts. Students are exposed to a number of scholarly texts on selected topics, and analyze these texts through critical reading and discussions in class. Students are then required to respond to these readings to write well-structured and stylistically appropriate academic papers. Students will receive focused advice and constructive feedback from both their peers and teachers on how to improve their writing skills.
