Communication studies and where it will lead in the future
How do you view the current state of the field? Our interest here is with the field of communication studies and the state of study involving communication, not the act of communicating. For this assignment, each student will prepare a five to seven page paper that explores the future direction(s) of the field. Specifically, the paper should address how communication studies can be defined, key topics in the study of communication, and how the field is likely to evolve in the future. I encourage you to begin this assignment by visiting the website of the National
Communication Association at https://www.natcom.org/. The format for the paper should follow APA guidelines. Please include a cover page for the paper. You will need to make use of appropriate sources for this assignment.
