DPI-802M

Today's leaders must have the ability to communicate with clarity and integrity. This course seeks to strengthen the capacity of each student to do so in public and private settings while navigating a diverse range of leadership challenges. Approximately one-third of our time together will be devoted to lessons and discussions to introduce students to strategies of communication and models of public presentation. The other two-thirds will consist of smaller sections, in which students will have the opportunity to practice and improve their public speaking skills.

Each course in the DPI communications series assumes fluency with the English language.
