COMM 601: Communicating Data 

Visualizations are powerful. Scholars of visual rhetoric and design teach students to understand that good visualization is not only clear and accurate but also appealing. When executed well, visualizations enhance oral or written communication by supporting arguments and claims, providing insight into complex issues, and promoting recall and decision-making in audiences. However, even the most well-crafted visualizations must be supported by effective oral and written communication. In this course, students explore both sides of this relationship, becoming familiar with common genres of visualization and with techniques for designing them effectively, and ethically, and presenting them orally and in prose.
