APRIL 21, 2017--The University of Delaware Center for Political Communication is spreading the word about two political communication courses offered this fall 2017 semester. Please call 302-831-7771 for more information.
COMM/POSC/LEAD/UAPP 337--Topics in Political Communication: Understanding a Divided Nation
CPC Director Nancy Karibjanian will teach this 1-credit, pass/fail class on Wednesday evenings, 7:30 to 8:20 pm. Intended to complement COMM/POSC 447, the course will meet on non-National Agenda Wednesday evenings. You don't need to register for COMM/POSC 447 to take this course.
COMM/POSC 447--National Agenda 2017: As We Stand | Divided
CPC Associate Director Dr. Lindsay Hoffman is teaching National Agenda again this fall, and if you've been to any past National Agenda events or had friends who took the class, you know it's a one-of-a-kind experience! Students enrolled in this class will meet nationally known speakers in the classroom as well as at receptions/dinners, discuss divisive issues; read perspectives from all sides, and develop research skills. It also fulfills a component for the Political Communication minor.
The 7th annual National Agenda Speaker Series and its corresponding course (COMM/POSC 447) will explore the divides that exist in the United States, including gender, class, race, income, and geography. There will be six public events featuring top speakers from across the country to address these important issues and how Americans communicate about them in today's political landscape. Our 2017 speakers include a stand-up comedian, a transgender rights activist, a former U.S. Congressman, and more!
Students are required to attend each event, all on Wednesday evenings: September 6, September 20, October 4, October 18, November 1, and November 15. Find out more and view previous programs here: https://www.cpc.udel.edu/events/national-agenda.
