Interpersonal Communication (CMS 115)

Although we regularly engage in interpersonal communication in our daily lives, we seldom stop to reflect on those interactions. In this course we will examine theories, concepts, and research associated with interpersonal communication and their applications for ethical and effective interaction in personal and professional settings. Emphasis is placed on the communication process, perception, listening, self concept and self disclosure, gender and cultural differences, verbal and nonverbal communication, conflict, power, and relationship development and dissolution. Class activities, discussions, readings and assignments are designed to develop communication skills necessary for interpersonal effectiveness and competency.
