I searched this online, and I found only a single site with information regarding how to mention a course name in an essay.

There were two conflicting answers:

  1. If you prefer to (or need to) say its full name, make the title in italics or underline. Quotation marks are additional characters, and less is better.

  2. Just put it in capital letters.

Which should I follow? If my course is "Introduction to Computer Programming," which should I write?

  • Introduction to Computer Programming
  • Introduction to Computer Programming
  • Introduction to Computer Programming

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

    As this is a matter of style, it's considered off-topic here, but you might get some good input at writers.stackexchange.com ... – Hellion May 11 '15 at 15:54

This is purely a question of style, i.e. one of those conventions that may differ from field to field, but aside from that do not matter one bit to anyone at all. So ask your teacher/advisor, or check what your peers do. If nobody can tell you "always use A, never use B", then go with whatever you want. Just make sure to be consistent. Pick one style and stick to it.
