Featured Classes

Providing instruction in essential communication skills required in the professional business environment, this course focuses on preparing for all types of professional communications. Activities emphasize communication in real-world business situations and enable students to begin developing their ability to write and speak effectively in the workplace. Course participation includes the delivery of purposeful presentations and peer critique.
This 28-week long course teaches how to rapidly develop and test ideas by gathering marketplace feedback and searching for the unmet needs of customers. Students learn the fundamentals of innovation and entrepreneurship along with the skills necessary to commence running a competitive business able to flourish in today’s global economy. For the capstone project, students prepare, practice, and pitch their business plan to a panel of professionals for a chance to win cash prizes in the Apprentice University Sweat Tank Competition.
Many believe the study of America’s government and economics will be boring and even depressing. Some have the impression that government is mainly about laws and that many of our nation’s leaders (past and present) are self-serving and hungry for power. Others feel powerless to change the system, so they ignore the government until it directly affects them, which is usually when it hurts their pocketbook. This course studies both government and economics in unison, as they both directly impact these mindsets.
How to navigate in today's world of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity)? How to find truth covered by lies and facts distorted by misinterpretation in order to navigate? Today's young adults, more than previous generations, need to master logical reasoning and critical thinking because traditional authorities have lost their credibility. This course provides students with an introduction to logical reasoning and critical thinking in the hope that they will be intrigued and convinced to do further study on this subject. Examples from theology, philosophy, history, literature, culture, politics, economics, mathematics, and natural science are used to show students how to use basic logical reasoning and critical thinking skills to dialogue with others in the pursuit of truth.
Challenges arise every day, often in unexpected places. How do you develop the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in an ever-changing world? In this hands-on, activity-rich course, you will learn how to confidently and capably tackle difficult problems, reframe how you approach challenges, and build your innovative mindset.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way. Fortunately, one’s EQ can change over time and be developed in targeted areas. Understanding EQ can help enhance success in your profession and in life, as it's one of the top skills sought by employers.
