Students praised this course for giving them a great introduction to both reading scientific papers and being able to do scientific writing. Perceived issues with the course included a belief from multiple students that the course could be long and tedious in part due to the dry nature of the subject matter. Suggestions for improvement centered on requests by students to liven up the lectures either by encouraging in-class discussions or encouraging students to work in small groups or on projects. Prospective students should know that the course is welcoming to students without a background in science but they should be prepared to read a variety of scientific articles.
