Since Antiquity, scholars have appreciated the importance of communication: as social beings, we cannot exist without communication. We need to interact with people around us, to make sense of the world and to position ourselves in a wider social and cultural reality. In this course, we look at how and why communication evolved as a science and reflect on today’s dominant paradigms. The course also extends beyond the boundaries of communication science itself, exploring dimensions of history, sociology and psychology. Join our class, together with people all over the world.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO COMMUNICATION SCIENCE
Every person need have communication skills, because it became a part of every individual life. This MOOC helped me understand about commnication much better.
the only criticism is that the volume in the videos should be adjusted, some are very low where i have to use headphones and most of them are not at good volume level.
Great course, very well presented. I had never really thought about communication in science terms and this course has been very valuable in bringing my knowledge up to speed
Thank you for your hardwork! Thanks for the videos and that you have tried hard in compressing such an elaborate and comprehensive study in such simple and quick ways. Keep on!
