Communication [COMM]: Course List

About COMM Courses

COMM courses focus on non-written mediums, such as public speaking, conversational foreign language, interpersonal communication, visual literacy, multimedia authoring, and intercultural communication. These courses require students to develop and express ideas clearly, concisely, and effectively in media beyond purely written communication in ways that creatively adapt content and conventions to diverse contexts, audiences, and purposes. Development of communication abilities may involve working with a variety of technologies, such as mixing texts, data, and images. It also may involve oral presentations and discourse, such as public speaking, small group interaction, one-on-one conversation, and active listening. All COMM courses develop a student’s understanding of the principles and elements of effective communication through extensive applied practice, self-evaluation, and revision.

You can choose one[COMM] course (3 credits) instead of a second [WRTG]course as part of fulfilling your UCORE graduation requirements.
