Courses Taught

A course designed to give the student platform experience in the fundamentals of effective speaking.
This writing intensive course examines basic verbal and nonverbal concepts affecting the communication process between individuals in various interpersonal contexts. Course also requires participation in written and oral activities designed to develop and improve interpersonal skills. Topics may include: perspective-taking, relationship and conversation management, effective listening, conflict management, communication climate, communication anxiety, and cultural/gender differences in interpersonal communication.
This course examines theory and research of persuasion. Topics include message characteristics, credibility, compliance-gaining, decision- making and motivational appeals.
Examines theory and research on the nature and development of small group communication. Topics include leadership, interpersonal relations and roles, goals, and decision-making in multiple organizational contexts.
Provides an overview of research and theory related to the “dark side” of interpersonal communication and relationships. This course will cover topics such as secrets, bullying, cyber-stalking, verbal abuse, and revenge between romantic partners, family members, friends,and sometimes strangers.
Intensive study of a specialized topic area in communication.
To participate effectively in the 21st century, students must be adept at both communicating their ideas effectively to different audiences in a variety of formats and contexts, as well as evaluating the messages sent by others. This integrated composition and communication course is the first in a sequence of two courses that focus on developing student's abilities to communicate ideas effectively using written, oral, visual, and electronic forms. As such, students will compose and present messages targeted toward different audiences, as well as evaluate the quality of the messages shared by others. Over the course of the semester, students can expect to work independently, with a partner, or with a small group of classmates to prepare messages, as well as to practice and evaluate interpersonal and team dynamics in action.
Composition and Communication II is the second of two general education courses focused on integrated oral, written, and visual communication skill development emphasizing critical inquiry and research. In this course, students will explore issues of public concern using rhetorical analysis, engage in deliberation over those issues, and ultimately propose solutions based on well-developed arguments. Students will sharpen their ability to conduct research; compose and communicate in written, oral, and visual modalities; and work effectively in groups (dyads and small groups). A significant component of the class will consist of learning to use visual and digital resources, first to enhance written and oral presentations and later to communicate mass mediated messages to various public audiences. Over the course of the semester, class members can expect to work independently, with a partner, and in a small group (team) to investigate, share findings, and compose and deliver presentations, as well as to practice and evaluate interpersonal and team dynamics in actions.
