Communication Theory

Description:

The purpose of this assignment is to have feedback on your final project in order to make revisions, receive guidance and help you to work ahead of the final deadline 🙂

Please submit a rough draft of your final paper.  The following must be included:

  • Clear introduction and thesis statement
  • 1-2 paragraphs about the theory itself and how it is used in other research
  • A clear argument about your application of the theory to your selected artifact/text
  • References list so far

I expect to see at a minimum 3 pages of written work, as the final assignment will be 6-8 pages in length.  

Example:  In a past article I have written, I applied myth analysis to reality television programs.  While this is broad, you do not have to be so broad that the application is impossible or so narrow the application cannot be accomplished. 

NOTE: You may locate articles that use quantitative methods to research/apply a theory.  These are fine for references, but know you will not be conducting a quantitative study for this paper.
