This is the first of a two-course sequence that introduces students to essential skills of the communication and journalism discipline. Students will develop skills to communicate thoughtfully, professionally and ethically with a variety of public audiences. Essential writing and public speaking skills are paired so that students master a writing style and then convert that writing to an oral presentation, or vice versa. Students learn how to appropriately and effectively speak and write to academic, professional and citizen audiences. Students are strongly encouraged to complete this course and COJO 112 before taking any 300- or 400-level COJO courses. -- --
