    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course. Emma Moore is a great teacher, very fun and down to earth. She teaches right from the book and the powerpoints she uses during class are all made available online, so don't worry about writing down everything on the board. She often gives hints about possible exam question topics, so take note of that and anything else not explicitly stated on the powerpoints, and you should be good. Her class is a breeze day to day but her tests are hard, so don't slack on studying for them. They are given on a computer and her true/false are pretty tricky sometimes. Overall a great experience - would recommend!

    Course highlights:

    It's a course I truly believe everyone should take. It focuses on the relationships you have with the people around you. It teaches you how to have healthy communication with those around you, even when you may dissagree with him/her. It's a course focused on figuring yourself out. You learn better ways to phrase things, so you don't come off pushy, as well as learning how to decode body positioning and behavior in conversations. You learn to check yourself before you say something that could come off accusatory to the other person.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    For speeches, she doesn't put too many points towards "DELIVERY" - aka, make sure your speech is well worded and make sure you look up sometimes, but don't stress about memorizing it. I brought flashcards up with me every time, and would reference them almost every sentence. I would read the first part of the sentence off the card and try my best to deliver the rest of it while looking around at the class. Also, dress up nice for the speeches - she gives you extra points!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is taught to better the live of students in a wholistic approach. It focuses on interpersonal relationships and how we can get the most out of them and be the happiest in them. I found it to be so useful. Sometimes when taking classes I wonder how far down the line will this be useful, but in this class, I was able to immediately use the information and skills that I learned to make a drastic difference in my life. It will help personal relationships as well as the success reached as a student.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the ability to be open in a safe place and relate to classmates and our professor on a really personal level. It was great to hear the different perspectives from other students. I think the most important thing in that class what that we were able to give a direct voice to other opinions, which we all know exist and understand the validity of opposing feelings.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take full advantage of how much these skills have the power to transform your life and really make it relative to you.
