21st Century Job Skills

All students, regardless of background, will go through upper division courses focused on providing the skills for the 21st century jobs.

Foundations in Creativity and Innovation (UNIV 3331) - An introductory course focusing on the theoretical and practical aspects of both creativity and innovation. The class will be centered around the study of creative and innovative leaders throughout history, their impact on their workplace and the world. Students will be expected to demonstrate both creative and innovative thinking throughout the class by participating in "hands on" application of the material.

Workplace Applications (UNIV 3332) - The course will engage students in an interactive online learning environment through the application of technology within the workplace including Microsoft Office and web based media as well as effective professional communications. The skills learned and applied through this course are specifically designed for students to better market themselves in the competitive 21st century workplace environment.

Foundations in Cultural Competence (UNIV 3333) - The purpose of this course is to empower students to be able to function effectively in situations with diverse individuals and unique environments. In becoming an effective and successful 21st century professional, students must have the skills to function in a global environment and in unfamiliar situations. In this course, the student is exposed to experiences that promote cultural awareness, skills, knowledge, and the desire to be culturally competent through authentic experiences and reflection.

Professional Ethics (UNIV 3334) - This course examines moral problems relating to professional practices and the workplace. By reading and discussing a diverse selection of ethical works, cases, and practical scenarios, students will develop skills in critical analysis and logical argumentation of professional conduct related to moral problems, such as those relating to: the employer-employee and professional-client relationship, business management, criminal justice, education, engineering, health care, and the law.

Leadership Principles (UNIV 3335) - The purpose of this course is to enable students to prepare themselves to become leaders and to embark on paths of personal leadership development. This journey into leadership requires personal curiosity and reflection from students as well as personal openness and sharing with the professor. Leadership development concepts used in the course will be immediately applicable for students and useful for the rest of their lives.

Professional Portfolio Project (UNIV 3336) - This course provides a structured process for the development of a professional portfolio that highlights the individual's academic, workplace, personal, and professional accomplishments. Both an e-portfolio and traditional portfolio will be created.
