Human communication is by its very nature an ethical enterprise. Whether in the workplace, in interpersonal settings, or civic contexts, how we communicate raises important moral questions: what is ethical communication? What isn’t? How can we tell the difference? This class takes up these questions and more in a discussion-oriented, writing intensive survey of key issues in the study of communication ethics.
Students in this class will:
- engage key issues, questions, and problems associated with communication ethics;
- participate in informed class discussions;
- research, compose, and complete a substantial essay.
