Course Description

This course introduces the integrated nature of the communications skills program and establishes the importance of communications for a successful life and career. Students are made conscious of the behaviors and communication patterns typical of the groups to which they and other students belong; they learn to see themselves as audiences for others as they explore how different audiences have different patterns of communication and different expectations; they are encouraged to value and respect differences in communication patterns exhibited by others; and they are encouraged to adapt to the patterns of behavior and communication expected in academic and professional life. Though all the communications skills are introduced and practiced, reading, interpreting, and writing are emphasized.
