Modes of Communication

INTS 1007

Written, spoken and visual communication are essential in all academic and professional contexts. Individuals must be able to communicate effectively to a variety of audiences and for a variety of purposes. In doing so, individuals must be able to utilize principles of sound argument which incorporate research. Key to this is the ability to read academic research and critically summarize it. Students create a number of written assignments and presentations using approaches from a variety of disciplines including the sciences, humanities and social sciences. Students focus on clear, coherent, academic writing that follows the conventions of post-secondary and professional writing and goes beyond the five-paragraph, formulaic essay. One hour of the course each week is devoted to lab work where students will hone communication skills including grammar/mechanics, style, coherence, unity, presenting, and techniques for integrating research.
