Section Description

The words "communication" and "community" share the same Latin root, communis, which means something in common. Well-trained communicators are essential to healthy, vibrant, democratic, and just communities. This course is an introductory survey of the theories, practices, and professional applications associated with public communication. As such, it places equal emphases on theory and application. This course aims to help students develop the basic PCOM skills and sensibilities needed to be relevant, responsible, and creative communicators in their communities. Specifically, this course explores communication theories and skills related to interpersonal, small group, organizational, intercultural, workplace, nonprofit, mediated, and strategic interactions. Successful completion of this course will serve as a foundation for students interested in advanced studies in PCOM or as a helpful primer for the types of issues and experiences CENT and CID majors will encounter in their coursework.
