EC 1000 Effective Communication 1: Verbal and Visual Literacies

This course provides essential training in analyzing and creating poly-modal forms of written, oral, digital, and visual communication.

Emphasizing the conventions of reflective and critical modes of writing and speaking, this course prepares students for communicative success in their college careers and beyond. The course may be offered as Writing Intensive or Service-Learning. Students must complete this course with a 'C' (2.0) or higher to fulfill the CORE requirement in Effective Communication.
