Course details

It teaches business writing skills needed to write many types of business correspondence. It covers claim, bad-news and sales letters, job applications, and the writing of procedures and instructions. It covers the same content as COMM 2202, but has additional English language support and communication development.

To make up for a full-time diploma program level 2 COMM course, students must take both COMM 2002 (or COMM 2202) and COMM 2003 (or COMM 2203).
