COMM 6100 - Communication Theory in Practice: Here and Now♦
(3 sem. cr.) It has been said that all communication is persuasive in nature. Whether this assertion is true or not, it is likely that individuals frequently attempt to persuade others on a daily basis. In this course, students explore the theories and approaches needed to enhance persuasive messages, make communication more effective, and generate a desired effect. Students examine how to craft oral, written, and visual messages that integrate persuasive theory for a selected audience. Topics include the psychology of messaging, communicating a consistent message across various media, rhetorical theory, persuasion, negotiation, and cognitive dissonance.
