Background Knowledge Expected
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend taking this course because it is very important to know how to do communication research. If a student is planning on becoming a Journalist or another career that requires communication research this is the class to take.
The highlights of this course are focusing on research methods in the communication discipline and enhancing understanding. I learned how to determine between quantitative and qualitative research. I also learned about Aristotle's identification of logos, pathos, and ethos used in research and Burke's dramatic pentad analysis.
