Political communication is a vital part of the daily work of politicians.  They need to share their visions with the public. They need to help people understand complex public policy questions and solutions.  They need to rally people to support certain
 courses of actions.  And most important, they need to convince the voters in order to get elected and remain in power.  To achieve these, effective communication is very important.  This course aims at introducing students the basic theories and practices of political communication.  It would explore the ways in which political messages are sent and received so that students can better understand how their lives are shaped, and then have a better reflection of real life politics.  Moreover, while political communication becomes a rising profession, this course can provide a basic training to those students who want to begin their careers in this field.
