CEDAR CITY  Southern Utah University will offer community or undergraduate and graduate online courses developed in partnership with Dale Carnegie Corporate and Dale Carnegie of Utah. There are two seven-week online courses launching in the spring: GOSC 5200: Carnegie Basics Certificate and GOSC 6200: Carnegie Basics Seminar.

Based on Dale Carnegie’s 1936 book “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” the courses were originally built under the leadership learning block for the Master of Interdisciplinary Studies degree. Now other SUU schools and departments are getting on board. Master of Public Administration and Music Technology students can take GOSC 6200: Carnegie Basics Seminar as an elective.

“So much of what musicians do is at the intersection of creativity and successful interpersonal relationships,” Steve Meredith, assistant to the president for institutional effectiveness and director of music technology at SUU, said in a press release.

“The Master of Music program in Music Technology at SUU is pleased to provide the opportunity for our students to receive Carnegie training as part of their degree program,” Meredith said. “It does so much to improve the types of interactions that musicians face every day.”

Chris McCormick, Cedar City Area Chamber of Commerce president and CEO, has nothing but praise for Dale Carnegie Training.

“I took the Dale Carnegie course on Effective Communications and Human Relations over 30 years ago and it transformed my life,” McCormick said in the press release. “This course helped me to open my mind to new ideas, improve my communication skills, develop greater self-confidence, and have a greater passion for life. I highly recommend the Dale Carnegie program to anyone who desires to get more out of life and their relationship with others. To this day I utilize what I learned in the Dale Carnegie program.”

Both the Carnegie Basics Certificate and the Carnegie Basics Seminar, launch in Spring 2019 and are available for community members, undergraduate and graduate students. Check with your adviser to find out if either of these courses can be counted as an elective in your degree plan.
