I write course descriptions for academic organizations… and it can be challenging! In very few words, you must convey course content, share details that entice prospective students, provide a context that gives the course relevance, and outline tangible outcomes. My favorite part about writing course descriptions is that I learn so much about such a wide range of topics: from poetry to pantomime, from climate change to classical music, from beer to business marketing.
