Communication studies or communication sciences is an academic discipline that deals with processes of human communication and behavior, patterns of communication in interpersonal relationships, social interactions and communication in different cultures.

Studying communication can improve how we see others, as communication is the way we meet others, develop and manage relationships and work effectively with others.

Students in this field, depending on level of entry, learn how to research and analyze information and how to clearly and cogently communicate topics through writing and speaking. You will take courses in research strategies, theory, rhetoric, public speaking, writing, and journalism/media.
