Rhetoric, Media and Social Change

Consider how our use of language and symbols shapes who we are, what we do, and what and who we and others may become.

RMSC courses bring critical attention to the nature of representations and knowledge practices in communication. How do these mediate our lives and experiences? We examine how concepts of identity, community, public life, ethics, and morality are contested and changed.

Students learn to analyze media from across political, popular, and professional cultures. How can we understand social change in diverse settings? In the program, you will consider how media and culture offer differing resources to engage in political action in your own life.
