FCO 105 Rhetorical Communication

This course provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for successful, goal-driven written, oral, and visual communication in academic and professional contexts.  All subjects and professional fields require effective (i.e., rhetorical) communication directed at well-defined audiences to explain information and to offer a compelling rationale, and this course illustrates the process-oriented approach needed to achieve rhetorical objectives.  Rhetorical Communication also introduces students to the knowledge-producing and critical thinking potential of language, the impact of technology on language and information, and the nature of communication as ethical action. Prerequisite: Cumulative high school grade point average of 3.20 or higher or concurrent enrollment in FCO 103
