Course Spotlight

Health Education (Part 1)

Maintaining good health poses one of the biggest challenges we face as human beings, and during the pandemic we have seen people struggle in different ways. Whether or not we have suffered physically from the virus, most of us have experienced new types of turmoil and stress. 

It’s all about balance. 

Our health and well-being not only have to do with the physical aspect of life, but also the mental, emotional, social, environmental, and spiritual aspects. 

Learn How to Speed Read 

Do you ever feel frustrated with your pace of reading? Sometimes we sacrifice comprehension because we skim (or skip!) reading assignments. To the opposite extreme, sometimes we may miss deadlines in an effort to comprehend every single word.  

With timed tests, approaching deadlines, and a large number emails, books, and documents to read, learning to speed-read is a great time investment. And yes, it is a skill that anyone can learn! 

Geography (GEOG 041)

Did you know that Marovo Lagoon in the Solomon Islands is the largest saltwater lagoon in the world? The lagoon is formed between two islands, protected by two barrier reefs, and has some of the best snorkeling opportunities in the world, with chances to see sunken WWII planes. 

Did you know that one-third of the world’s tropical rain forests are located in Brazil? Tropical rain forests only cover about seven percent of the earth’s surface, but nearly half of the world’s species of plants and animals live in them. 

First-Year Spanish, Part 1 (SPAN 041)

¿Hablas español? In a society that is becoming more and more connected, learning to speak another language can be invaluable. Spanish, the fourth most spoken language in the world, should be high on any list of languages to learn.  

The number of occupations that require knowledge of Spanish is growing! Knowledge of Spanish is now essential for some jobs in the auto industry, sales industry, airlines, tourism, reception services, social work, law enforcement, and much more.*
