My feelings upon the completion of this class is the feeling of accomplishment and motivation. I have learned so much from this course. Information that I never knew that existed in our country’s history. It makes me wonder why there is so much that we are not required to learn in history classes. It makes me proud to be a woman and know how far we have gone to get to where we are at today. We definitely do have a long way to go to have equal rights amongst all. I would take another women’s studies class if I had to take another electives class. This women’s studies class was insightful and kept me intrigued. My questions were answered. I learned much more than I would ever expect. I did have fears that this class was going to get heated,
In the beginning I chose three minors that I felt would be beneficial to many aspects of life and business. The first chosen was communication. Communication is essential in all that we do, both professionally and socially. Without being able to articulate and receive information properly, we would not be able accumulate or disperse knowledge needed to perform to the best of our abilities. For my second minor I chose public relations. Public relations is how the public perceives an individual or organization. And how person or company responds and communicates to situations pertaining to the individuals it serves.
I did learn a lot from the classes. Every week, the person who delivered the speech would give really useful information. The lady Veronica from CCO gave us the tips on how to create our resume and what will be useful when you are having an interview. Although I am not going to get a job after graduation, I still got a lot of useful information.
I want to major in “Human Services”. By getting a master’s degree in human services you can become many different things such as a marriage and family therapist, human services educator, a drug and alcohol counselor, a school social worker, and many other things.
My major is Human Development. I am taking 13 units for this fall 2015, and volunteering at Horizon Cross Cultural Center where I can learn my skills and my experiences. My future plan is graduate in the Spring of 2017. After graduation, I plan to work full-time.
I felt this course has become extremely helpful in learning about and understanding United States history and gave me better overviews of all the significant events that shaped the United States into the great country it is today. So many things I have leaned about in this course were quiet magnificent. The most important thing that I noticed about history is that it’s always changing. No matter how much evidence we have of the past, the way we look at the past can be distorted in many different ways.
A question frequently heard among students, from elementary to college, is “when will I need to know this?”. No matter the class, there is always someone who believes the course does not pertain to them and is a waste of time and money. Myself, I remember thinking that very same thing of AP Calculus and later Statistics. As someone aspiring for a career in the health sciences, I assumed that a comprehensive education in the various math forms was superfluous. And though I love history, English, and art, I caught myself wondering if I would ever utilize such knowledge beyond that class. What I have realized, however, is that all knowledge gained by an individual can only work to their advantage. Furthermore, I believe that liberal arts courses
Walmart is one of the biggest retail stores in the world. Walmart operates worldwide with current total count of its stores reaching 9.667 stores worldwide (Walmart Corporate, 2011). Interestingly, Walmart is an organization that is currently non-unionized. This paper will provide brief background information on Walmart organization. Legal issues and obstacles that Walmart could encounter will also be identified. The writer will determine which federal, state, or local laws could be broken because of the legal issues and why. Finally, recommendations to minimize possible litigation will be provided.
The one class that really opened up my eyes to see the world in a different point of view was Entrepreneurship and Creativity. I may have not gotten the best possible grade, but I will never forget the learning principles that inspired me to create and explore many different options. The course had a marketing pitch competition that has gotten me to think in an entrepreneurial mindset ever since. As my parking app pitch came close with the runners-up, I am still trying to improve and innovate from previous models.
Over the course of this class I have pieced together many things about my own life that before went unnoticed. I am now able to see things in a bit of a different light. Now that I have been introduced to the realm of psychology I understand some of the reasons for behavior around me. I have learned that there is a reason for most everything and a lot of our behaviors and mental processes can be explained through psychology. Studies have been conducted for many years to try and pinpoint the source of our behavior and it is not something that most people think about every day. Having a better understanding of why we operate the way we do will help me to better understand myself and the others around me.
There’s so much opportunity to learn new skills, and information about my professional degree study. With the information that’s taught to me, it will not make me limited on what I could do in the work field. Educational Studies will help support, and get me ready for what I need to know. The study teaches about diversity, multicultural issues, children with learning issues, and so much more.
I have learned so much in this class to prepare me for a successful college experience. There were some topics that caught my attention more than others. Such as, time and stress management, University resources, and critical thinking.
When I graduated from high school, I was admitted at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I enrolled in the School of Business. My major was Accounting. I did so to please my parents and what I thought would be the best fit. I was not very happy, and I must confess that I was bored to death. After two years of studying something that I did not like, I changed my focus to School of Social Work. I was taking elective classes in Social Work/Mental Health Counseling and realize that this field held my interest and really represented how I viewed myself and the world. I was out from College for 5 years. Working with the Department of Social Services and numerous nonprofit organizations. For the last 5 years I have been working as a Social Worker for Department of Social Service Child Protective Service Investigator. I actual love my job because it is customer (client) oriented and I got to practice my counseling skills indirectly and directly with my clients I encounter on an daily
Employment or labor laws have been developed to facilitate smooth relationship between employers and employees. Employment laws provide rules and regulations that should govern both the employer and the employees in their places of work. Employment laws discuss issues related to child labor, wages and salaries, retirement, working conditions, compensations, incentives and employment benefits among others. The major objective is to ensure the employer does not exploit the employee and on the other hand, the employee honors the terms and conditions of the job as presented by the employer.
I feel like I learned a lot from this course. I think, overall, this course was very eye-opening and made me understand, and want to better understand, issues involving gender and how they effect society. I would say the one of the most important pieces of information I learned was just how much the idea of gender and gender roles influences everyday life. I had never really thought too much about the determents of gender or traditional masculine and feminine ideals before this class, and how we as a society promote and encourage the belief that a person’s gender or sex creates different innate, natural attitudes and attributes. Learning about how important society’s views of gender is, and how it affects the way we learn and think, makes me look at our culture in a different way. For example, before this class I never realized how much women are objectified and put under intense Photoshop in advertisements. This better understanding of the way society is helps me take a step back and look at our culture in a different way, and allows me to become more aware of the issues surrounding gender, sex, and the ideals of masculinity and femininity.
