The study of communication and rhetoric is one of the oldest and also one of the most contemporary of fields.

In courses such as ethics, persuasion, argument, interpersonal communication, political rhetoric, rhetoric of science, nonverbal communication, history of media, media criticism, and television and society, faculty offer diverse views on the roles of communication, media, and rhetoric in our lives.
