Communication is a popular major among college and university students because of the flexibility graduates gain when entering career opportunities, requiring the necessary skills of researchers, editors, journalists, marketers and public relations specialists.

Communication is the exchange of information through thoughts, messages, or information, through speech, visuals, signals, writing, or behavior. The art of communication services requires a sender, a message, and a recipient. The receiver may or may not be aware of the senders intent and may even be the wrong intended target, thus creating a dynamic in the many barriers associated with communication. The boundaries may be simply language, or it may also be education, culture, status and age among many other factors that affect how an intended message is interpreted. Effective communication is one of the timeless, best and most valued business marketing tools available. Senders of a type of communication will have the skill to incorporate nonverbal, oral, and written communication methods.

The academic field of communication emphasizes the diverse avenues of human communication, while creatively incorporating how messages are interpreted through specific political, cultural, economic and social dimensions relevant to a particular target audience. The necessary social science associated with the art of communication is exemplified by the course work in sociology, psychology, anthropology, biology, political science, economics, and public policy. Most colleges and universities use the general education courses combined with specialized communication courses to build a solid foundation for successful graduating students.
