COURSE #: MULT-1000 Intro to University
DESCRIPTION:  This course serves as a preparatory course for university studies or as a support course taken concurrently with initial enrolment. Students become familiar with the nature and demands of university study, and acquire personal strategies and attitudes that enhance their first-year experience and their ability to function effectively in a university environment. Students also develop practical and effective learning, study, and time management skills, and learn how to apply strategies to aid in the writing of tests and exams. There are opportunities to practice such as note-taking, organizing information, essay writing, public speaking and class participation, and conducting research.
