COG 444 - Semiotics and the Study of Meaning


2019-2020 Catalog Year:

Semiotics is the study of signs and sign systems in the world of meaning we share through communication. This course is an introduction to the methods and theories of semiotics and its concern with the “life of signs“‘signs as individual entities, as they operate within larger groups of signs called codes, and as codes, in turn, operate within cultures. The importance of this topic for human life makes the subject appropriate for students from all disciplines, undergraduate and graduate.
