CAS 308 - Rhetorical History and Criticism

3 hours
This course is an in-depth introduction to the long tradition of rhetoric, the various arts of rhetorical criticism, and the theories that underpin this approach to analyzing communication-from the influence of classical thought and the Christian Church to the Enlightenment and postmodern thought. Students will be introduced to a broad range of ideas, topics, artifacts, issues, problems, perspectives, positions, and readings so that they can then apply that knowledge to more confidently craft arguments regarding real-world persuasive communication. This class is writing, research, and critical-thinking intensive. RC/CS
