Effective communication skills are critical in any relationships.

Attention is given to verbal and nonverbal communication, listening skills, perceiving others, managing conflict and interpersonal relationship within family, work, groups, and teams.
Wellness & Healthy Living
Students investigate their own personal well-being through the exploration of the fundamental principles of physical and mental health. These principles are applied to various day-to-day activities or issues, allowing the student to make positive decisions that lead to a healthy lifestyle. Topics covered include dealing with stress, exercise and physical fitness, nutrition, sexual health, substance and non-substance addiction, personal safety, and environmentally friendly health choices. Through interactive lectures and online activities, students use this information to self-reflect and learn more about themselves on a personal level.
In this introductory course in business communication, students prepare for a variety of business writing and presentations encountered in the workplace.
