PTC 604: Communication Theory and Research

This course reviews major theories of communication and provides strategies for theory-based research in the field of Professional and Technical Communication. The course focuses on the following research methods: problem statement and hypothesis formulation derived from theory; research design and data generation; existing information sources and their acquisition; and analytic techniques. Our goal in the course is to allow students to develop analytic methods--drawn from traditions in both the humanities and the social sciences--which are necessary to generate a well-considered research.
