NOCA Feature Story of the Day:
A Class Worth Your Fall Schedule
By Darious Robertson
The most important part of any person’s life is the way that they interact with the people they love and share familial ties with. Everyone needs to know how to effectively communicate with their current family, as well as their future family. The few Communication electives that are being offered for the Fall semester seem to be rather limited, but there is a great option for those who enjoyed Comm 215, Introduction to Interpersonal Communication. If you want to learn about how to communicate effectively with the people in your life, then Comm 378, Family Communication, is the class for you. To be able to understand your family from a theoretical standpoint is invaluable. Comm 378 will be all about learning how to properly communicate with familial relationships. A question that may come to mind is, “but people already know how to talk to their families, so why would anyone need to take a class for that?” It takes almost no effort to have simple communication with your parents, sibling(s), spouse, and children, but effective communication is a learned skill. Family Communication is all about learning how to interpret the signals that your family sends you, whether they are nonverbal or verbal. This knowledge will allow you to act on these signals accordingly.
Dr. Claudia McCalman will teach Family Communication, Comm 378, in the Fall. Her experience is extremely diverse and she is an interpersonal communication expert. She has obtained her degrees from universities in Brazil, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania. Before making her way to Southeastern, Dr. McCalman also taught at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, the University of Texas in Edinburg, and Indiana University-Purdue University in Fort Wayne. Comm 378 will be lecture based and will be held in room DVIC 385. The class is still open for enrollment, so be sure to sign up if you are interested.
