According to the University of Arkansas, "As a subject for academic study, communication bridges the humanities and the social sciences. It focuses on relationships - personal, group, and societal - and the factors and processes that affect important relationships. Friendships and families, business relationships and political systems, cultural interaction and technological advances are important areas of study in communication. Communication students may concern themselves with the dynamics of interpersonal persuasion, the effects of media technologies, the nature of gender stereotypes, the function of roles within the family, the structure of organizational authority, the influence of cultural myths, the impact of social movements, and the history of rhetoric. Because the program offers many diverse interests, there is a place for anyone with a genuine curiosity about human communication and its effect upon society."
