In this course, students develop workplace communications skills for a professional research environment. Topics covered include effective stakeholder communications and management, cultural competency, emotional intelligence, negotiation, conflict resolution, and appropriate use of electronic communications (e.g., text messaging, email, and social media). Students learn about how to interact and manage relationships with clients, vendors, managers, team members, and other stakeholders.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
