COMM 3335 - Rhetorical Theory

Credits: 3 Class: 3 Lab: 0
Prerequisite(s): 3 hours of COMM and junior standing.
This course offers a historical approach to the study of public communication and rhetoric. Considering communication’s roots in the rhetorical tradition, the class surveys classical, modern, and contemporary theories. Each individual approach is relevant for students seeking to improve their communication knowledge and competence. The class engages both the continuities and ever-changing nature of communication, constraints, and technologies. This class can be taught from multiple perspectives so students may take the course more than once. For example, students can take a course in classical theory, contemporary theory, feminist theory, or a general survey of rhetorical theory.
