understand how cultures affect Communication, to appreciate the differing values in visions of human existence, to see the world through the eyes of other people, other cultures, and other periods

shape arguments to the needs of different audiences

design and present documents in print and other media.

Students learn to see the design of what they read and to design what they write thoughtfully.
