- Develop student's capacity to follow, discuss and present, in both oral and written forms in English, the subject of communication and its history.

- Develop student's ability to assimilate, summarise and to criticise, as necessary, information received.

- Develop student's ability to research an academic subject.

- Develop student's ability to work individually, and in a group.


The course is designed to provide students with:

- an understanding of what communication involves, in all its various aspects (verbal, non-verbal; personal, public, mass, etc..);

- an overview of how and when different means of communication evolved and their impact;

-an awareness of communication as an act which results from our personal background and culture, and which is marked by the context in which it occurs (by way of preparation for LCE II and III courses in Intercultural Communication).
