Linfield College is excited to announce their new online certificate in Communication and Diversity. This certification aims to teach students effective professional communication skills within a variety of cultural contexts.
Offering online courses for over ten years, Linfield College provides convenient, practical courses that students in all fields can utilize. The Communication and Diversity Certificate provides a foundation in personal discourse with an experiential learning opportunity to build their skillset with an internship or community service. Students may also select an elective outside of communication arts that correlates to their individual career path or interests such as Business, Education, or Health Care.
Linfield's faculty and staff believe this certificate will offer one of the most important and effective tools for all students. "Increasingly global connectivity in the work environment calls for us to provide our students with an opportunity to hone their communication skills so that misunderstandings and conflicts on the job decrease," said Laura Brener, director of Online and Continuing Education.
Linfield's goal is to have a communications program that will benefit almost anyone who is working within diverse populations. Students can advance their careers by developing the proper skills in communicating with individuals from varied backgrounds. Our Online and Continuing Education department provides a learning environment that allows students to succeed, with technical support available at all times as well as online tutoring and academic advising.
