This COM 199 UB seminar will explore the concept of engagement¿how we capture the interest of others when communicating and work to establish meaningful connections with them. In this pursuit we will draw on 1) fundamental concepts in the field of communication, 2) observation and discussion of speakers, 3) self-assessment and analysis, and 4) firsthand experience planning and executing engaging content via course assignments. Success in academic life (and in other contexts¿e.g., professional, personal) increasingly depends not only on the acquisition and possession of knowledge, but on our ability to effectively share it with others. Though the practical component of this course will focus largely on sharing and presenting information in academic and pubic settings, the principles and concepts we discuss will be applicable in wide variety of contexts and interactions.
Enrollment Requirements
Prerequisites: Students who have already successfully completed the first year seminar course may not repeat this course. If you have any questions regarding enrollment for this course, please contact your academic advisor.
  Course Description
The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
