This course will focus on the creation of written and visual messages appropriate to a targeted audience and a specific medium including print, broadcast, interactive, digital and online technologies. Case studies of effective and unsuccessful messages from, for example, advertising, public service, education, and technical communication will be examined. Students will have the opportunity to create and execute a variety of messages using different writing styles with images that are directed toward specific target audiences. Course objectives are met through readings, lectures, written assignments, in-class assignments, and discussions.
Generally, applicants are expected to have formal academic training or documented experience in the areas of environmental management (air, water, solid, and hazardous waste), occupational health, and occupational safety. Academic and experiential gaps in these areas may be addressed through professional electives and additional courses. Applicants without this experience may be required to complete a graduate cooperative education placement during their program of study.
Graduate Record Examination scores are not required; however, applicants may submit test scores to support their candidacy.
