This subject covers the whole gamut of communication providing a toolkit of theories to explain organisational culture, gender, media, cultural studies, cultural diversity, semiotics, rhetoric, groups and persuasion. Other subjects in Communication build upon these theoretical understandings to explain the relative effectiveness of different ways of communicating. Individual, social and technological aspects of communication are examined from theoretical and practical points of view. Skills in qualitative research, and analysis of practical problems in the workplace are developed.
