Course Description

Communication will encourage students to become curious and skeptical observers of the broad, dynamic, relevant field of communication. Students will be required to recall and understand course concepts about essential communication skills, the definition, models and history of communication, the cultural, personal, and physiological contexts, verbal and nonverbal coding systems, and mediated, interspecies and extraterrestrial communication. Students will be required to satisfactorily demonstrate communication skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Provocative, interdisciplinary learning materials and teaching techniques are used to help students find coherence in their education and counter the trends of specialization and self-preoccupation.(Prerequisite: ENGL-095 or satisfactory completion of the College's foundational studies requirement in writing)
