You are a university student so the chances are your IQ is above average - but what about your EQ?
EQ describes your level of EI (Emotional Intelligence) and the good news is that, unlike IQ, EI skills can be learned and improved at any age.
Many studies have shown that it is an important factor in enabling academic and workplace success.
This is an "experiential" course, ie the group's participation is a vital ingredient, conducted in a friendly supportive atmosphere, which includes surveys, discussions and activities based on learning and practicing the components of Emotional Intelligence, such as Self Regard, Interpersonal Relationships, Assertiveness, Empathy, Problem Solving, Stress Tolerance (and others which you get a chance to select).
You can find out more about Emotional Intelligence and its importance from the introductory chapter of the course workbook here:

You can also listen to this podcast with an interview with Daniel Goleman, the original populariser of the concept of Emotional Intelligence.
