COMM 345 - Communication Activism (3 credits)

(Prereq: juniors and seniors only and successful completion of 60 credit hours) Students work with non-governmental, governmental and/or grass roots advocacy groups to engage in public service, social justice, and/or other applied communication projects, collectively referred to as Communication Activism. Utilizing a variety of communication skills—including but not limited to message design for foundational, educational, and/or preventive campaigns—students research, publicize, advocate for, and/or intervene in a social justice project with a community service organization. This is an active, intensive course that combines service learning with perspectives and practices from communication, health promotion, social science, and journalism; this course is designed for students committed to social activism.
