Advertising Rhetoric

Presentation

The Curricular Unit of Advertising Rhetoric is essential for students to develop skills related to discursive persuasion, in order to enable the understanding of rhetorical resources and the development of the creative potential applied to advertising communication. From the theory of classical rhetoric, students are expected to identify argumentative strategies, parts of discourses, rhetorical operations, and stylistic resources, adapting these mechanisms to mediated rhetoric, resulting from the increasing evolution of the media and the needs of a consumer society.
