We are all "lay" experts in communication. By the end of the course students will recognize differences between vernacular and academic approaches to communication, and will be able to apply theories of perception, the self, culture, language, nonverbal communication, health communication, identity, relationships, mediated communication, organizations, and mass communication to real life situations. Despite its size, this class is a hands-on, active learning experience. Prepare to be involved. SAS Core Curriculum Goals This course fulfils the following SAS Core Curriculum Goals: (i.)Explain and be able to assess the relationship among assumptions, method, evidence, arguments, and theory in social analysis, with specific application to communication theory. (m.)Understand different theories about human culture, social identity, economic entities, political systems, and other forms of social organization. (n.) Apply concepts about human and social behavior (specifically, communication) to particular questions or situations. (o.)Examine critically philosophical and other theoretical issues concerning the nature of reality, human experience, knowledge, value, and/or cultural production. (q.)Understand the nature of human languages and their speakers. Goals will be assessed via 3 papers and targeted items on 3 exams.
