Communication & Media Literacy

Communication and Media Literacy Distribution List Description

A democracy is dependent upon an informed and articulate citizenry. Effective oral and written communication consistently appears on polls showing desired attributes and core competencies of prospective employees. Students who are competent communicators and who understand the presence and influence of media in their lives and the lives of others will flourish in our world. In order for students to achieve competence, we propose a distribution list that will ensure students understand both media and human behavior. These courses in this list will highlight the importance of not only the message, but also the messenger. They will help students use communication media more effectively and to control better the media’s impact on themselves and others.
