COM3021 Relationships & Relational Communication


By studying the practical and theoretical aspects of relational communication, students in this course will learn the techniques for managing the communication demands of meaningful intimate relationships. Students will investigate the role of self-awareness, perception, listening, nonverbal communication, gender difference, and ethics in resolving conflicts and creating more successful interactions between intimate partners, friends and family members. Current research and theory on topics such as attraction, equity, power, gender, and marriage will be explored. Students will be introduced to a range of literature and research from several disciplines. Relational communication skills will be practiced through various experiential formats, such as role-playing, simulations, observations and in-depth analysis of everyday interpersonal exchanges. As a discussion based course, students will be regularly assessed on discussion practices as well as complete assignments such as several 3-5 page research papers on various theories followed by the 8-12 comparative analysis paper. For a final project, students will (metaphorically) construct a personal “relationship toolbox.” Students must have completed three courses at the 2000 level, with grades of C or higher, as prerequisites for this course. One of these prerequisite courses must be either a COM 2000 or HIS/HUM/PHI 2000 level course. Students cannot receive credit for both CO2022 and COM3021. Credits: 3.000
