COMM 4281 - Gender and Communication


3 cr. 3 hr. Day course offered in the Fall.

An exploration of the relationships among communication, gender, and culture. It provides analytical tools for understanding how we create a sense of self as gendered and sexual beings, and how various forms of communication reflect and construct cultural understanding of sex and gender. Students critically explore the ways in which we all—through communication in families, schools, media, workplace and other spheres of society—create, perpetuate and/or challenge gender roles. The course also explores how gender and sexual politics are appropriated and reinvented for popular consumption.
