The subject is underpinned by an ecological-developmental conceptual framework. Communication between individuals and within and with couples, families, groups, organisations and communities is addressed. Students are experientially introduced to beginning interpersonal communication skills. They are also encouraged to experiment with and reflect upon a range of creative forms of communication and multimedia. Communication within contexts of diversity, along with the ethics of communication are emphasised throughout the subject.
