Communication and rhetorical studies is taught in London, England, and Madrid, Spain, through Syracuse University Abroad. This experience helps you develop appreciation for language in an intercultural setting.
You can study abroad for a semester, a summer, or a year through SU Abroad without interrupting your degree program. Studying abroad, especially in non-English-speaking countries, can enhance your foreign language skills. Approximately 40 percent of all SU students spend time abroad.
SU Abroad offers many additional study abroad locations through the World Partners Program. Some of these include Australia, Costa Rica, India, Ireland, Israel, Japan, and Russia. World Partner programs in Africa include options in Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, and Tanzania.
Communication and Rhetorical Studies in D.C. allows CRS students to examine key sites of political image-making, from campaign advertising and lobbying to public diplomacy and policy promotion. After meeting in Syracuse for the first week of the intensive two-week course, the class will travel to Washington, D.C., to meet with experts to determine how current practices reflect and/or complicate the prevailing scholarship.
