personal, public and professional lives. Students study communication dynamics in
interpersonal relationships, groups and public settings. By studying how, why and
with what consequences people communicate, students will become more competent communicators.

"I am getting the hands-on training that I need for my medical assisting certification. Hancock is convenient for me to commute to and is very affordable. The instructors are very helpful and knowledgeable. After this program, I plan on getting either my RN or going on to get my physician assistant license."
