COMM 3345 - Rhetorical Criticism

Credits: 3 Class: 3 Lab: 0
Prerequisite(s): 3 hours of COMM and junior standing.
This course explores the models and methods available to the public communicator. Students will understand how situations and texts work rhetorically and how each method contributes to dynamic understandings of social phenomena, including, but not limited to, famous and lesser-known speeches, monuments and public art, and social and mass media. Through an introduction to a wide range of rhetorical methods, students will engage their own roles as creators and consumers of messages. 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 feminist rhetorical criticism, modern rhetorical criticism, public memory and rhetorical criticism, or a general survey of rhetorical criticism.
