Communication and Ethics
Sometimes what is effective is not always what's right. In this course, students will explore moral philosophy and communication concepts and theories in order for them to develop clearer perspectives and ethical rationales for the communication choices they must make in their personal, academic and professional lives. The course covers issues surrounding privacy, public interest, freedom of expression, obligations to an audience, social justice, professional codes of conduct, stereotypes, diversity, plus individual, artistic and social responsibility.
Prerequisite: COM-100 or COM-130 or 30 completed credits
