CMM 343: COMMUNICATION IN CONTEMPORARY
It won't be long before you are getting ready to graduate from the University.
That means during your last semester here you'll be sending out resumes
to try to get a good job. You've probably gotten comfortable here;
you certainly know the ropes so life is pretty predictable. When
you think about leaving and getting a full-time job, you may be experiencing
some stress over what it will be like and how successful you'll be out
there in the "real world."
This course cannot promise you success, but it will help you
have some sense of what it will be like to work in an organization in 2000.
Organizations have been changing, quite dramatically in some ways, and
we will talk about some of those changes in this course. We will
consider the implications of those changes for communication systems and
processes in organizations. This course is designed to extend your
knowledge of organizational communication beyond the foundation you learned
in CMM 230 and to stimulate your thinking about a variety of issues such
as power, organizational identification, culture, communication technologies,
and diversity issues.
Class sessions will involve discussion, with some lecture.
Your participation in class is needed and is expected. To participate
effectively, you will need to complete all readings and assignments on
time. You will be asked to discuss in class your experiences in organizations
and what you read about companies and other relevant topics.
