Communication & Social Influence

Heather LaMarre, Ph.D., Chair
Weiss Hall 216A

Utilizing Temple's unique setting as an urban institution, Communication and Social Influence (CSI) majors learn to be effective communicators in settings defined by their civic engagement, risk, and conflict management. The civic engagement area focuses on communication of socio-political activities and community advocacy. The risk area deals with communication about health, science, environment, and security. The conflict area focuses on community, institutional, organizational, and conflict analyses and appropriate conflict management. Infused across these areas is a core aspect of urban environments—social justice and diversity. This major prepares students for law school and graduate programs, as well as working in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
