COM 461

Screen Shot 2018-11-03 at 11.13.53 AMThis summer I had the opportunity to take COM 461 (communication in leadership) as an online class. Because I am trying to graduate within four years, I was unable to take this course with my cohort during the spring semester.

I really enjoyed that this course was real-life application based. My professor assigned case studies that dealt with leadership situations in the real world. For instance, we discussed conflict management in the workplace and collaboration with colleagues. I enjoyed that leadership was discussed mainly in the real world, since most leadership discussions I’ve had in college focused mainly on student organizations.

Additionally, taking the course with non-LAS students allowed me to gain a wider variety of perspectives on leadership issues. In my course, there were student-athletes, presidents’ of student organizations, and even foreign exchange students. Each student brought a valuable perspective to our class and allowed me to see leadership in many different contexts.

I really enjoyed this course and it taught me many leadership skills that I will be able to use now and after graduation.
