Communications [clear]

Communication Studies at Evergreen spans the humanities, social sciences, and media arts. Communication can be a sub-theme within interdisciplinary programs or the primary focus of a program or class. Communication themes include:
• rhetoric (persuasion & advocacy, public speaking, rhetorical theory, fiction and non-fiction writing, health communication, political communication, and social movement rhetoric)
• social interaction (cross-cultural communication, organizational management, conflict communication, and interpersonal communication)
• cultural studies ( critical theories of popular culture particularly in relation to race, class, gender, nationality, sexual orientation and other social boundaries; communication & technology; language & power; communication & social change)
• media studies (production and critical analysis of documentary and fictional film, television, radio, internet-based media, and other new media forms).
• journalism (researching, interviewing, writing, and speaking for multiple media formats)
Developing good communication skills is one of the fundamental goals of an Evergreen education. Writing and speaking are emphasized across the curriculum through multiple writing formats, small seminars, collaborative projects, and class presentations. In addition, students who wish to practice media-based communication skills have access to state-of-the-art sound recording and television studios, a thriving student-run newspaper, and an on-campus community radio station.
