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
Helpful introduction basic theories and approaches in the Communication Sciences, which were explained clearly for those new to the field.
This course was incredibly delightful and very helpful, as a media and communication student, this course widened the information I had and helped me with my home university courses. Thank you!
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
It was really fun studying this MOOC. I had a really wonderful experience even though I'm not a Communication Science major (I just took it out of curiosity to learn!).
