Interpersonal Communication

Interpersonal communication is perhaps the most fundamental aspect of the human experience. By communicating with the people around us, we develop a sense of self and establish a network of relationships that is critical for our survival, success, and emotional well-being. This course will introduce you to the key theories, concepts, and research findings in the field of interpersonal communication. We will work diligently to connect theory with practical applications in view of developing your own competencies as an interpersonal communicator. By the end of the course, you should acquire a deep understanding of the psychology of human relations, and you should be better equipped to evaluate and respond to everyday communication challenges.
