SPEECH 111 Interpersonal communication
PREREQUISITE: None

Examines the dynamics of the communication process within the context
of interpersonal relationships (those with friends, families, romantic
partners, and co-workers.) Influences of self-concept, perception,
listening, verbal and non-verbal communication, and emotional expression
are explored. Principles of relationship development, communication
climate, self-disclosure, and conflict management are also discussed.
Rhetorical principles are also practiced and faculty supervised/evaluated
in a variety of ways.
STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES
Students will demonstrate their understanding of the concepts and
theories of interpersonal communication by evaluating their own
communication patterns and making changes to improve their personal
relationships when needed as described in their personal journals and or
paper assignments.
Students will demonstrate the influence of personal variables (self-concept
perception and emotions) impact their communication behavior by using
exercises designed to illustrate these concepts, followed by discussion.
Students will demonstrate their knowledge of the impact gender and
culture play in communication by participating in activities that are
specifically designed to show the differences, followed by group
discussion.
