Understanding Rhetoric (AS-107)

In a post-truth world of fake news, alternative facts and micro-targeting, the art of understanding and using rhetoric is more important than ever. This course will provide students with the skills to identify elements of rhetoric in communication. Through identification, students will be able to deconstruct communicative practices and engage more critically with all types of information. As well as equipping students with a greater degree of information literacy to meet the challenges of digital citizenship, it will allow for an understanding of how to construct persuasive arguments through rhetorical devices.

Information: Modules that carry the AS- code are non-credit bearing modules. This means that successful completion of these modules by attending 80% of the course, will appear on your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) Diploma Supplement.
