DR 360 - Voice and Speech

(3.00 cr.)

Students explore oral communication with an emphasis on harnessing the communicative power of the spoken word. We speak all the time - how can we do it with more confidence and effectiveness? This course addresses the many contexts in which we use the spoken word and how we can adapt to these contexts for maximum impact. Course activities lead to increased awareness of each students' habits, ability to assess what use of voice is appropriate for certain texts and situations, and an understanding of and facility with the tools available to enhance verbal communication through conscious use of the "performative" aspects of voice and speech. Students also gain an increased sensitivity to how others communicate verbally with us. Same course as CM 366 .

Sessions Typically Offered: Summer
Years Typically Offered: Annually
