Course work helps you to relate to people of different cultures and to communicate successfully in a variety of contexts.
In-person learning, web-enhanced courses and experiential learning through study abroad immersion, practicum, internships, and independent study opportunities reinforce the acquisition of new knowledge. Service learning and civic engagement are emphasized in the development of critical analysis, problem-solving, teamwork and effective oral and written communication skills necessary in the 21st century workplace.
