Course Description

This course reinforces the integrated nature of the communications skills program and the significance of communications for a successful life and career. By learning to analyze and understand their professors as audiences, students are made conscious of the communications and behavioral expectations of their professors and of the reasons for variations in those expectations. While acquiring strategies for researching, interviewing, interpreting, and speaking, students focus on principles of logic, critical thinking, argumentation, and audience analysis necessary to create their own arguments as well as critique the arguments of others. Though all the communications skills are practiced, speaking and writing are emphasized. All written work is to be done on a word processor.

Prerequisite: COSK1220
