About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Making decisions is part of life. What should you put on your sandwich? What song should you listen to on the way to work? These may seem like tiny decisions, but they're decisions nonetheless. Bigger decisions demand bigger solutions and its up to you to find them. Decision-making isn't just making the right choice: It's also the ability to solve problems and think creatively applied directly to real situations. These are all skills that you can develop, and this course will help you unlock that potential.
With the expertise of Dr. Brent Scholar from the ASU College of Integrative Arts and Sciences, the decision-making specialization will put the tools, knowledge and strategies to make effective decisions directly into your hands. You’ll learn the fundamentals and get acquainted with your decision-making toolkit. Then, you’ll directly apply them in hands-on scenarios.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
