As a discipline, Communication focuses on how people use verbal and nonverbal messages to transmit meaning to other individuals. Given that communication occurs in a wide variety of settings, the discipline of communication focuses on how meaning is made in various contexts, cultures, and settings. Communication courses allow students to take a social scientific and interdisciplinary look at human communication and the role that it plays in our lives by focusing on areas such as interpersonal communication, mediation and dispute resolution, intercultural communication, and in specific contexts like business communication, health communication, political communication, public relations, and visual arts.
