Ethnography of Communication

Certificate in the Ethnography of Communication

Work on this certificate introduces you to theories, methods, and contexts essential to the comprehensive study of communication in various cultural contexts. You will learn to navigate the vast diversity of cultural life, which exists simultaneously with a universal human capacity for thought, imagination, and expression.

Courses for this certificate provide you with a foundation from which to explore shifts, circulations, and innovations in public culture, particularly as it is manifested in language and practice in both local communities and the emerging global arena.

This certificate involves the study of performance, language, and media as they engage the full range of communication, from the everyday to special forms, genres, and uses, and from face-to-face to mediated encounters.
