CCOMM 3505 Political Communication

Political Communication refers to the exchange of messages, symbols, and information between institutions, elected officials, social groups, and citizens. We will study the way politics is communicated: how political messages, past and present, have been shaped and disseminated; how candidates decide on strategies and communicate them to the public; the methods used by political parties as they try to gain or maintain power; and how politics is covered by the media.
