COMM 4050 - Communication and Society: Theories and Applications

Expert communication professionals excel in their craft and their careers by applying foundational communication theories and principles to their practice. While practitioners benefit from an understanding of seminal, theoretical approaches, it is imperative that professionals are able to confidently navigate the contemporary, evolving environment of cultural and commercial communication. This course provides an overview of seminal mass and mediated communications theories and applies them to today's workplace in order to situate praxis as a meaningful pathway to enhance impact. Additionally, students develop a command of mediated communication frameworks using emerging theoretical approaches to digitization, convergence, and networked culture. Readings and assessments are geared toward active comprehension of communication theories so that students are able to recall and implement theoretical concepts in their professional environments.
