American College of Healthcare Sciences Launches Three New 5-Week, 1-Credit Research, Writing, and Critical Thinking Courses for Complementary Alternative Medicine Students

Portland, OR (I-Newswire) March 14, 2013 - American College of Healthcare Sciences is proud to announce that it will offer three new five-week, 1-credit courses in time for Summer Semester starting May 20, 2013. The new courses include LIB 101 Online Research Literacy, WR 101 Writing Skills, and CT 101 Critical Thinking, which are specifically designed to help complementary alternative medicine (CAM) students to refine their research, writing, and critical thinking skills in the field. All three courses grant credit towards the College's Associate of Applied Science in Complementary Alternative Medicine (AASCAM) degree program.

"Critical thinking and application, including research and writing, are essential skills for complementary alternative medicine students," says ACHS President Dorene Petersen. "CAM students-and professionals-need to be able to accurately analyze current research and information on best practices to ensure a consistent, high-quality of knowledge and expertise in the field and to best serve the needs of their clients."

"Plus, many graduates go on to publish books, articles, and blogs, and to present teleconferences and webinars. These new five-week courses are fun, engaging, and vital for building students' confidence and career skills and so that they can appropriately represent the field in which they work," adds ACHS CIO Erika Yigzaw.

LIB 101 Online Research Literacy guides students through traditional and developing online research tools. WR 101 Writing Skills employs a series of engaging exercises to help students fine-tune the basic writing skills needed to succeed in school and in professional communications. CT 101 Critical Thinking is an introductory-level critical thinking course. Each online module guides students through specific strategies to help them refine their analysis and evaluation skills.
