Course Project Proposal
By the end of SPH 205, you will complete a college-level, APA format , academic research paper (800-1,000 words not including title or reference pages) on an interpersonal communication topic, perspective, theory, social issue, and/or communication problem you might experience in your chosen field of work. This will be due the end of week 5. Your outline will be due week 3 and rough draft due week 4.
For this week’s assignment you just need to select and propose two possible communication topics you might like to research for your paper. You only have to write your paper on ONE of these two topics. For the proposal you need to find an academic article for each possible topic from either the Carrington Online Library (Links to an external site.) or Google Scholar that discusses your topics of choice and provide an APA citation of the article(s). Then 1) describe why this topic interests you and 2) how you might apply or use it in your chosen field of work and/or what problems it might solve or prevent. Please submit as either a Word document or a PDF.
Some possible communication topics include: The perception process, Interpersonal attributions, The nature of language, Nonverbal communication, The listening process, Obstacles to effective listening, Communication and Emotions, or Conflict: Definition, values, and styles.
The purpose of the term paper is to provide you, the student, with an opportunity to explore an area of communication in greater depth.
