English 250: Advanced Oral and Written Communication

Through communication, we do more than transmit information and ideas. Communicating allows us to make connections with other people and the world around us, connections that foster different sorts of relations – creative, intellectual, and personal. As we work toward developing our oral and written communication skills, we will focus on our own academic fields and other communities relevant to us, how they communicate and circulate ideas, and how they engender creative, intellectual, and personal connections. We will also be interested in digital technologies, both in terms of how our academic fields have responded to them and how they might shape the nature of communication. Through the course, we will become more effective communicators and thus better prepared to engage with and respond to the world around us intellectually and creatively.
