Course Description:

Navigating today’s social atmosphere can be wildly challenging! This course will help students enhance their communication and understanding while learning about body language. Students will learn about two types of body language: macro and micro expressions. While exploring macro expressions, we’ll cover topics like why crossing your legs can be a sign of disinterest and what different standing and sitting positions imply about the person’s interest and comfort level. In micro expressions, we’ll explore the seven universal facial expressions, what they mean, and how to identify them. We will also learn strategies to subconsciously build rapport with others and to subtly let them know if you’d like to leave. Communication is difficult, but reading body language is an important tool in everyone’s communication toolbox.
