COMM3010 Research and Reporting (3 credits)
At the higher levels of study in a university program, the ability to research and report on a topic independently becomes increasingly important. By individually locating, evaluating and summarizing secondary research sources and organizing their data, students will analyze research in relation to a problem they are solving, draft a proposal, write a final report, and present their research to their peers. Lectures and assignments will guide students as they develop their final report.
