Department of Defense 
Joint Course in Communication 
Univeristy of Oklahoma

 The Department of Defense, in conjunction with the Communication Department at the University of Oklahoma, provides a two-month course in communications for the military's public affairs professionals.  The class provides a crash course in all areas of communication studies.  At the conclusion, students work in groups on a final project, applying the theories they have studied to resolve an actual military public affairs problem.  Part of the project is to design a web page to post the results on the internet. The pages are listed below:
