COMM 1040 Intro to Communication Theory

This course is an introduction to theories of human communication. Communication is the root of human experience and existence; therefore, the focus of this course is inherently interdisciplinary. Six areas of communication studies will be examined: the foundations of theory, interpersonal communication, group and public communication, rhetoric, mass communication, and cultural context. The study of these areas will include an overview of theories that are foundational to other social sciences, including psychology, sociology, philosophy, and women's studies. (3 lect.)
