教育目標

1. Students will learn the fundamental ways in which signs produce and extend meanings, and be able to relate in writing, on tests and in discussions how signs are fundamental to human communication. Students will be able to explain how and why we make choices about the significance of value and meaning of signs within the multiple fields of discourse addressing culture and society, including but not limited to art, advertising, film, journalism, politics and literature. They will demonstrate this ability in writings, and during speeches and discussions and exercises. 2. Students will develop an understanding of and be able to explain why certain forms of discourse are appropriate to certain topics, and why such forms come to be both received and debated over the significance and value of certain ideas and cultural practices. This study of discourse will extend across the disciplines of various fields, including but not limited to anthropology, history, journalism, psychology, religion, the sciences, politics, and philosophy. They will demonstrate this ability in writings, speeches, discussions and exercises. To be continued in the section on Learning Activities.
