About the Communication Module:

This module is designed to help students communicate their brand in a positive way. Every time you speak to another person, address a group, send an email, post to Facebook, or forward a tweet, you are projecting your personal brand; each of these communications should be a polished reflection of who you are and how you want people to view you.  Classes include public speaking, interviewing, writing, and social media.
