COMM 612 - Health Communication

Credits: 3

An introduction to the many ways that we, as human beings, communicate about our health. This seminar has been designed to integrate numerous theoretical and methodological perspectives on health communication in order to give students a broader scope of how health messages and health communication processes are enacted, mediated, conceptualized, and studied. Students will read and analyze how health messages are communicated interpersonally, organizationally, rhetorically, and through the mass media. Through studying these diverse health communication processes, students should become more aware of how these processes influence and impact each other (e.g., television messages about smoking impact how people discuss tobacco use interpersonally).
