Communication Studies brings together elements of the social sciences and the humanities under one central concern: the study of humans’ communicative capacities. This might involve studying the ways in which those capacities have developed and congealed into technologies, social forms and practices. It might involve analyzing the impact of these communicative styles, strategies, and practices on political, cultural and economic development. Communication Studies can include the study of humans’ symbolic systems, such as language or images, and the social relations and forms produced through those systems of communication – i.e., culture.
