Interpersonal Communications

14 weeks Course


Interpersonal communication is the primary building block for almost every communication context. It begins where all human and social phenomena begin – with the self. It continues as an ongoing process of sharing meaning with others and plays a central role in almost every aspect of our lives. This course is enriching, and immediately useful as interpersonal communication is a relevant process in which we constantly participate in, even when we may not realize we are participating in it with nonverbal communication. After learning about the topics covered in this course, it will be apparent how you encounter numerous opportunities to apply the concepts and newfound knowledge in your personal and professional life, and how it relates to your relationships and everyday interactions.

You may enroll in a Continuing Education course at Canadore College if you are 19 years of age or older or if you have earned an Ontario Secondary School Diploma/Ontario Secondary School Graduation Diploma or equivalent.
