Here are three 1-credit summer courses that can help you improve some very important skills!
Time Management (1 credit), CRN 41570
This course is designed to enable women and men to analyze their use of time, identify factors that contribute to wasting time, and improve the use of time through better prioritizing, scheduling, and increased motivation.
Stress Management (1 credit), CRN 41571
Instead of simply treating the symptoms of stress, this course will help students identify their own causes of stress and then deal with those causes prescriptively.
Self-Esteem (1 credit), CRN 41572
This course will explore the issues of self-esteem within a feminist framework, including the effects of sexism on self-worth, the role of women in a sexist society, and the tools needed to survive with a strong self-image.

Our Program Options
"As a first generation, nontraditional student it is my goal to graduate to improve my family’s quality of life. It is my dream to materialize my parents unachieved educational dreams and to provide a more stable environment for my child than the one I grew up in. I plan on doing this by working toward the empowerment of the Latinx and immigrant communities. GITA has been a welcoming space and an incredible support to my dreams. They have been an ally to my mission and an accomplice in my journey of strengthening my voice and empowering other by sharing my story. Thank You GITA!"
