The field of communication focuses on how people use messages to generate meanings within and across various contexts, cultures, channels, and media. The field promotes the effective and ethical practice of human communication.
Human communication occurs person to person, in groups and teams, in businesses, non-profits, in political, religious and social organizations, and government, essentially throughout all aspects of society. Communication is also mediated by and through technology. Human communication is tied inherently to every aspect and moment of our lives. In essence, human communication is about our connectedness.
Knowledge and skill in human communication are central to personal, economic, political, legal, social, and educational pursuits. It is at once the body of knowledge that informs our understanding and the vehicle through which we gain and disseminate that knowledge. Please join us as we examine human communication at the undergraduate level.
