This course considers the nature and meaning of interpersonal communication as dialogue. An examination is made of communication skills such as self-awareness, self-disclosure, listening and responding. Students will explore the meaning of four levels of communication: exchange, interchange, intimacy, and communion. The virtue of civility seen as an ethical organizational tool will be explored as the basis for enhancing all forms of interpersonal communication. (lec 3) cr 3. Cross-listed as RLST 2446.
