Skills Development

With three skills development areas, our program offers multiple courses that cater to all possible needs and interests. Students should carefully evaluate the skills areas and select the individual courses that will be most beneficial for them. It is important to note that students may choose one or more courses from a single emphasis, or mix and match courses between emphases. Some course, such as ESL 105, even span all of the emphases, as the content for this course is related to all areas.
