Our particular interests this semester are (1) foundations of communication competence, (2) using communication to manage interpersonal relationships, and (3) the basics of public speaking. Upon completing this course, students will be better able to evaluate critically communication messages and practices. They should see measurable improvements in their personal and public communication competencies. Class assignments require students to analyze their own communication practices and relationships, demonstrate interviewing and interpersonal communication skills, and develop and present a public presentation. Students should also be better prepared for more advanced coursework in the Communication Studies department. In addition to Dr. Waldron, our whole instructional team is committed to helping you succeed this semester. You will work with a variety of educational professionals as you (1) use the Fletcher library for research (2) visit the Communication Assessment and Learning Lab (CALL) for your public speaking assignment, (3) use the class Blackboard for on-line communication, and (4) work with teaching assistants to obtain feedback on class assignments.
