Communication and relationships…
COMG 381: Interpersonal Relations
Summer 1 (3-week intensive, 6/5/17 – 6/26/17)
This course analyzes the development, maintenance, and deterioration of our relationships. We explore the essential role of human communication in how we interact with and relate to others, through topics such as attraction and self-disclosure.
Students will gain a theoretical and practical understanding of communication in their interpersonal lives. One assignment in this class will involve finding songs about relationship break-ups and then analyzing what it says about relationships. In another assignment, students will reflect on their own communication skills and determine if their strengths are consistent with how others perceive them.
Required course for Communicology majors and minors.
