Building a Career-Oriented Communication Curriculum.
Tubbs, Stewart L.
Two career-oriented communication programs, developed specifically for engineering and industrial administration majors, are designed to integrate communication theory with skill development, organizational theory, and practical job experience. One of these, the industrial administration program, includes courses in written and oral communication, principles of psychology, small group interaction, organizational behavior, persuasion and attitude change, organizational communication, managing for effective performance, quantitative methods for behavioral analysis, and organizational development. The other program, in engineering, involves courses in written and oral communication, behavioral science, speech, communication in small groups, journalism, principles and techniques of interviewing, and principles of organizational development. Both of these programs are planned for the four-year student and additional courses are offered for overseas students and remedial students. (Brief course descriptions are included.) (MAI)
