RHET 124 - Communication, Culture and Illness

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically 
Disease is both biologically and socially constructed. Communication about health and disease is always filtered through culture. In this health communication class, students study three health conditions (e.g., HIV, cancer and dying) and the ways that individuals communicate about it. Through close readings of seminal texts and exploration of community resources, students gain a deeper understanding into how society and individuals cope with disease.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
May not be taken on a Pass/D+/D/Fail basis. (Formerly Communication, Culture, Healing.)
