Life Span Communication deals with the description, explanation, prediction and modification of the communication process across the life span. Life Span Communication scholars are interested in what a developing process of communication “looks like”, the developmental mechanisms of the communication process, how developmental communication functions across personal and professional contexts, and how the communication process can be altered to create an optimal environment for living a high quality life. Developmental theory and methodology across numerous disciplines will be a focus of this seminar.

Course Objectives

Each graduate student will be able to:

  • Understand the dynamic and complex processes of human development across the entire life span.
  • Embrace developmental change within both theory and methodology.
  • Translate the literature in life pan communication to real world contexts to improve and maintain a high quality of life.
