I believe that upon completion of this course I would become a good presenter by acquiring enough presentation skills during the course e.g. how to overcome nervousness, being confident etc. This will be met by doing 2 presentation skills planned in this course and sharing with my classmates’ different causes of nervousness and being confident during the presentation.

Moreover, if students are allowed to study the courses they choose, it will be easy for them to concentrate and work hard so as to excel in this subjects.

In his article, “The New Liberal Arts,” Sanford J. Ungar combats common liberal arts misperceptions that prevent future students from attaining a liberal arts degree. Many students believe a liberal arts education is irrelevant; thus, leaving students to futilely
