Communicate Like a Boss! (A Class on Effective Communication) is a 4-week course dedicated to exploring various practices when communicating within interpersonal relationships, within group/team structures and when speaking to groups as a public speaker.

This interactive course will strive to help students demonstrate an understanding of what communication is through cooperative group assignments, individual presentations and written assignments.
