In the 21st Century, we are in the midst of a communication and information technology revolution. Human communication is being transformed by technological, global, and cultural changes. Human interaction and creation of shared meaning through communication messages have increased in importance to everyone. From early cave drawings to the Internet, satellite, and wireless technologies we have connected and continue to communicate through a multitude of channels.
Communication happens face-to-face, through IM-ing, video games, text messaging, cell phones, and social media such as YouTube, Facebook, MySpace and other social networking sites. Communication creates the global village. This is the most exciting time in our history to study communication. Scholars and students in the School of Communication Studies are studying all facets of human communication in current and ever evolving media environments.
