Missoula College Offers Course in Children’s Communication

April 25, 2014

MISSOULA – A summer course through Missoula College will help child care providers, pediatricians, teachers and anyone who works with children better understand how children communicate. Registration is open for Survey of Children’s Communication, a three-credit online course that will be held from June 30 to Aug. 1.

The course will provide a survey of communication processes in early childhood through adolescence. In particular, the course will focus on how children learn to communicate; the contemporary communication environments of children and adolescents, including interactions in family relationships, friendships and the media; and challenges concerning childhood communication and its effects on later communication development, such as violence and aggression.

The course has been popular with Missoula-area educators and child care providers. To register in Cyberbear, select summer semester and enter CRN 51177. Registration instructions are available at http://www.umt.edu/registrar/Registration/registrationinformation.
