About Communication

What Is Communication?

The discipline of communication focuses on how people use messages to generate meanings within and across various contexts, cultures, channels, and media. It analyzes the two-way process of reaching a mutual understanding in which participants not only exchange (encode-decode) information, news, ideas, and feelings, but also create and share meaning. In general, communication is a means of connecting people or places. In business, for example, it is a key function of management--an organization can not properly operate without efficient communication between levels, departments, and employees. Communication is a diverse discipline which includes inquiry by social scientists, humanists, and critical and cultural studies scholars.
