    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course honestly really helped me in all aspects of my life. My professional and personal relationships improved based on concepts I learned in this course. Overall it was a really fun class with a lot of activities that help you get connected with classmates in new ways. There were many "icebreaker" activities in the beginning which can be a little awkward but each was unique and allowed for personal communication to take place. Every "lecture" felt like a conversation. Maybe beforehand, I would have liked to know about how many activities there would be. I was very shy before completing this course but it allowed me to break out of my shell by using the "tips" that allowed us to pick up on verbal and non-verbal communication cues. Every concept was applied to our own relationships and also compared to characters' relationships on movies and shows such as Mean Girls, The Office, and Friends which made examples very clear.

    Course highlights:

    More than anything I learned how to pick up on verbal and non-verbal cues. I also learned a couple different theories about how the language people speak shapes their entire life and their perspective of the world. Perception was another topic that was focused on; we learned how and why every person perceives the world different. This was helpful when applied to conflicts and conflict resolution (which were also key topics), because it allowed me to see that someone else's perspective isn't necessarily wrong, just different from mine.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students not to blow off this course. This course can be extremely beneficial to anyone that invests and participates. Participation in this course is crucial, do not expect to just be able to sit through the class without adding to a discussion, whether it is forced or voluntary, you will need to answer questions as well as lead discussions. This course may sound intimidating at first but it is a perfect way to sort of break out of a shell and gain confidence in your ability to communicate. I cannot stress the need for participation enough though. Learning through activities and discussions is very refreshing as opposed to other courses where creativity can be stifled. There isn't a lot of reading required in the course, mostly small articles that are more thought-provoking than anything else. The readings are very supplemental to the course and it is important to keep up with them because you can count on a discussion in class about it. There is a final paper but she will work with you to ensure you understand both the assignment and the material you learned in the course which makes the paper nearly stress-free. Do not be afraid to ask for help, Monique is a very helpful and overall delightful professor.
