CMM 364 - The Dark Side of Interpersonal Communication
3credit(s) The purpose of this course is to examine the “dark side” of interpersonal communication, which highlights the aspects of interpersonal communication typically seen as dysfunctional, including deception, gossip, communicative infidelity, and verbal abuse. The “dark side” can also include aspects of communication that are poorly understood or have yet to be fully studied. Through readings, discussions, writings, and research, we explore some major areas of communication research focused on the dark side. Prerequisite(s): CMM 225W.
