    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend this class to anyone since it is always a good thing to understand nonverbal behaviors when people communicate.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that nonverbal communication is the most important form of communication since it is the basis of what people really want to say and shows a persons true emotions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I'd give students planning on taking this class would be to pay attention in class and to ask the professor for help if you need it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Rodriguez is great at what he does. The class is really informative and has plenty of real world application. I found the essays (3 throughout the entire course) to be topically relevant and relative to the material learned. The exams, both mid-term and final were straight-forward, and the study material provided was sufficient for getting the best possible grade. All in all, Professor Rodriguez does a fantastic job preparing his students for future coursework for those on the Communication Arts major path.

    Course highlights:

    I felt like as we progressed through the semester the lessons just built upon one another and continued to intrigue me. There were several topics that I feel will stick with me well after graduation. The study in intercultural communications and how the nonverbal customs of those from other cultures may be interpreted by those in western cultures. Another highlight of the curriculum was learning how to dissect the facial expressions of others in multiple circumstances. This has so many different real-life applications in the corporate world, and can really help someone read nonverbal signals that others may miss. Finally, in the closing weeks of the class Teacher-Student Relationships and Supervisor and Employee Relationships were the topics. These were my two of my favorite chapters because it helped me understand some of my own rationales, as well as exposing some of my own biases that I may place on those who hold positions of leadership in my life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My number one piece of advice would be to read the weekly assignment questions before reading the chapters. This allowed me to keep on the lookout for particular catch phrases and topics throughout my chapter reading.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This professor has truly been one of the best professors I have had. She provided an incredible learning experience that I will never forget. With weekly presentations and research papers, this professor really did prove to know her stuff. Unlike many teacher who often do not pay attention or care about your studies, Prof. Marino would never lack to give students her all. This course focused on the variety of non-verbal communication cues and how to apply it to our everyday lives.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of experience from this course. At first I was pretty skeptical to be honest since it seemed like a simple course that was made difficult. In the end, it did have its challenges but thanks to the professor she got all of her students through it. Because it was a course on non-verbal communication, I feel as if I picked up on many cues to observe from those around me. Additionally, I learned some dos and donts to further provide a higher self image of myself towards others.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you don't like doing weekly research papers DO NOT take this class. You need to be able to stay focused and on task. Also there is a final group presentation at the end of the semester. My advice is to have connections and build a strong bond with a few students in order to avoid any presentation issues in the future. Other than that, stay focused and have fun!
