À propos du cours

Since Antiquity, scholars have appreciated the importance of communication: as social beings, we cannot exist without communication. We need to interact with people around us, to make sense of the world and to position ourselves in a wider social and cultural reality. In this course, we look at how and why communication evolved as a science and reflect on today’s dominant paradigms. The course also extends beyond the boundaries of communication science itself, exploring dimensions of history, sociology and psychology. Join our class, together with people all over the world. Introduction to Communication Science explores some of the basic theories, models and concepts from the fields of mass, interpersonal and intrapersonal communication. The course begins with a consideration of several basic models, subsequently progressing to the history of communication theory, linear effect-oriented theories, the reception approach and, finally, exploring theories on the production and reinforcement of culture through communication. Upon completion of this course, students should: • have knowledge of the history and development of communication science; • have knowledge of the dominant theoretical approaches within communication science; • have knowledge and understanding of the most important models and concepts in this field. Beginning the week of February 16, 2015, you will be able to join Signature Track, a system that verifies your identity when you take an exam. This option will allow you to earn a Verified Certificate, which provides formal recognition of your achievements in the course and includes the University of Amsterdam logo. Before then, you can complete a “test run” of the exam. You can then re-take the exam after the Verified Certificate becomes available. For information regarding Verified Certificates, see"...

I find this course is very interesting and quite challenging since my study background is not communication. The provision of the video helped the understanding process of the explanation given although in some materials multiple readings are necessary. Overall, this course really helps me in building basic communication knowledge that will be used in my next semester teaching. Looking forward to enrolling in other useful courses!

I am very satisfied with this course. Content was great and it covered as much as possible about the topic into few lessons. I only wish there was second part of this course. Videos were interestingly made (illustrations, important points written down atc.) and the lecturer has very pleasant voice and good accent (which I appreciated very much since I am not a native english speaker). All in all it was a very good experience.

This was an exceptional class in every way! The course was well organized and expertly delivered. The faculty presenter was engaging and energetic with an excellent grasp of the communication science content. I appreciated his examples and the integration of theory with an historical developmental focus. I wish I lived in Amsterdam and could attend your classes on a regular basis!

The course is comprehensive. I like how easy it is to learn something from a different perspective. The course has a universal appeal to all learners (from different cultures). The lecturer is very brief yet profound on the way he explains the concepts. I had a great time.

P.S. Please come up with a course on non-verbal communication. Thank you for this learning experience.

Loved this course! The University of Amsterdam has one of the world's best communication programs so when I found out that they offer a very short and condenses crash course on Coursera, I had to take it! It's a shame the university doesn't offer other courses regarding different aspects of this field. Would have loved to take more. Regardless, I give this course 5 stars!

A very well designed introductory course with clearly defined discussion of communication sciences theories from a social sciences and mass media studies perspective. The course instructor is delightful and concise. The exams cover all materials taught in the course both from a theoretical and comprehensive application point of view. Loved the entire experience.

Incredibly well-planned introductory course which melds history and theory. Highly recommended for both students as well as seasoned media professionals who may have ample experience "on the job" but can use a refresher on the theoretical underpinnings. Also, it's nice to learn how theories evolved with the times, and how it will continue to do so.

I truly enjoyed the content as well as the format of this class. While the pace was very swift, it was apparent that a lot of thought was put into developing this course. I feel like I've gained a quality education on the basic introductory information to Communication Science. The Little Box of Nuances inspire me to further explore this subject.

I got a lot of new interesting information, I needed. It helped me to understand the society and media, and how these two systems work together. I really appreciated the way information was given. Also, it was easy for me to understand the language itself, English is my third language, but is wasn’t a problem, not even a little. Thank you!

This course inspires me to observe, think about and analyze our media, culture and the society as a whole. After finishing the course, my horizon has been broadened, and I ammore interested in getting to know and read more about communication science as a way to support my career planning. I feel very glad that I took this course.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. The course material clarified many of the things I had learned during my years working in the communications field. The supporting material was excellent, the videos were well done, helpful assignments and the final exam was an excellent review of the course material.

Coming from a science background, this course helped me understand how different media reports Covid-19 news all over the world. Aside from the current pandemic, it also helped me understand how we communicate; made me recount similar experiences as the presented examples in the theories.

Fantastic Introduction and wonderfully laid out when I did it. I enjoyed learning about communication and how noise and coding/decoding will stifle communication as well as how understanding these concepts will help people overcome barriers resulting in better, clearer communication.

I really enjoy participating in this course. It is very well structured and explained so that one can easily remember and put on a timeline the different historical, sociological and scientifically aspects of the communication. I recommend it to all working in the field.

This course transmited good examples, and taught us to think about the media, in general, and the paper it has in our lives. But I think the more important thing was that our teacher taught us how to construct a different way to look at the world aroud us. Thank you!

Really well planned, structured course with lots of ideas that can be developed and researched further. Also tests are quite challenging and demands a real understanding of the subject as most of the questions are not that straight - forward. Thank you!
