COMP 230 - Introduction to Rhetoric

3 Credit(s)

Gen Ed: WC credit.
Introduction to Rhetoric provides a basic overview of the traditions, theories, and practices of rhetoric and rhetorical studies. Beginning in Ancient Greece, moving into the current day, we will read both primary texts and analytical or interpretive texts in order to inform our critical and systematic reflection of rhetorics and their histories. The essential purpose of this course is to demonstrate how rhetoric shapes the world(s) in which we live. As warranted.

Prerequisite(s): COMP 101  or LITR 110 .
