CCOMM 2402 Communication Ethics

While some behaviors seem easy to categorize as wrong, the distinctions aren't always so clear. Posing the question: What does it mean to be an ethical person?, this course will explore the many ways ethics show up in all aspects of human communication - including how we talk to each other (and how we talk about each other) and how ethical standards can vary over time. We will examine a number of theories about ethics, and apply them to the ethical dilemmas that can arise in political communication, interpersonal and organizational communication, and media communication.
