CMNS 110: Introduction to Communication Theory


English 099

From viral Instagram images and YouTube channels, to waiting at an airport for the next flight, we barely realize the immense amount of information that surrounds us on a daily basis. How do we make sense of all this information? How much of this information is communication? What is communication? This course addresses these questions (and many more) by providing an extensive exploration of human communication. By surveying perspectives on interpersonal and intercultural communication, understandings of the self, origins of speech, and sign systems (among others), this course explains the complex essence of human communication in a uniquely accessible and engaging way.
