If you could create an academic course that is in the Emory University spirit of collaboration, creativity, entrepreneurship and inquiry, what would it be? What impact would the course have on you and your classmates' educational experience? (500 word limit)

I would create a course series aiming to impart negotiating skills. The course series will last three semesters. During the first semester, students will be imparted basic theoretical knowledge - critical thinking, argumentation, political science and diplomacy. Students are required to do considerable after-class reading to get a basic understanding of different culture customs in various types of negotiations. During the second semester, the main focus is on practice.

Students will get training for common forms of negotiations which can be employed in various walks of life in the future.

The last section of the course series can serve as preparation for those who want to enter politics or being involved in world affairs. I will take this course to shape myself into a friendly ambassador, promoting international cooperation and communication. In Emory, I intend to apply the knowledge and skills acquired from the course to dealing with more challenging issues. Starting fromby becoming an asset of thewithin Student Government, I will take the role of coordinating with the school and the students to make things work better.

Great essay. Just remember to keep your tenses consistent. In this essay you can easily do this by replacing "will" with "would" because your essay is referring to an idea that may take place if you were given the opportunity to implement the idea. Other than that, this is a very clear and easy to follow course plan. Good going!

... Students are required to do considerable (considerable what?? you need to specify it) after-class reading to get a basic understanding of different culture customs in various types of negotiations. During the second semester, the main focus is on practice. Students will get training for common forms of negotiations which can be employed in various walks of life in the future. The former of two sections are open to all students and each class is restricted to have no more than twenty students to ensure the class discussion and interaction with the teachers. The third semester is designed for students who have a career goal of entering politics. The model negotiating conferences will be held regularly in class, focusing mainly on political negotiations in the forms of United Nations, European Union, British Parliament and American Council. Each class is restricted to eight to twelve students to enable class debate while ensuring everyone's participation.

If my classmates and I take this course, we will benefit from it in multidimensional ways. Through the former of two sections of the course, we will receive systematic training on critical thinking, which can possibly to enhance our abilitiesy of questioning. Critical thinking can also be applied to academic writing and debating, making our statements more logical. In the meantime, we can enlarge our knowledge base through extensive reading and form a habit of caring about current affairs around the world. Furthermore, we can gain interpersonal skills and be more tactful when having conversations.

You give good detail on what the first two corses will be, but not the last two. Give more information on that, especially the last one. Other that that, and the few wording corrections I made, this is very well written and interesting. I would like to take that course as well!

I hope this helped.
