Internships are designed to integrate classroom study and supervised practical experience in a work setting. Each student is required to write a series of reports focusing on aspects of the work experience that are related to coursework in the Communications Department. These assignments are designed to enhance a student's ability to reflect critically on the internship experience and to merge theory and practice. Assignments are available, depending on the number of credits granted (1-4). Students are expected to hold the common exam time (TR, 1240-2) open for occasional meetings. Before starting the internship, students must submit a written proposal to both the work supervisor and the faculty sponsor. The proposal should include detailed information on the duties and responsibilities to be undertaken at the internship site and on the goals and learning objectives as relevant to the Communication Department curriculum.

This course examines how traditional rhetorical theories and methods apply in contemporary digitized environments. It asks whether we can employ, as is, traditional theories and methods, many of which were developed centuries ago, or whether we need to develop new approaches in order to understand persuasion in online contexts. As it explores these issues, this course tackles both rhetorical production and rhetorical analysis. That is, it asks students to both create and analyze digital rhetoric. Students are required to have taken two 500 level CMN courses (C-) prior to this course, unless granted instructor permission.

Media and the Environment

There are few topics, beyond communication itself, which better reflect our interconnected humanity than "the environment." Mediated environmental messages surround us, whether about expansive issues like climate change or the newest, organic or sustainable product. These mediated messages often come together or diverge around conceptualizations of our environment hinging on risks and uncertainties about the fundamentals of contemporary society. This course will look at the study and practice of the environment and media through a range of concepts, ranging from the "sacrificial landscape" reflected in television shows such as the first season of HBO?s True Detective to the "growth machine," as a persistent framework to understanding risk amid the imperative of economic growth in contemporary capitalism.
