    Diving Deeper into Communication: An Introduction and Beyond not only provides students with the foundational information they need to understand the broad study of communication, but also demonstrates how to “do” communication. The book describes the different areas of communication studies and explores their unique features. Equipped with this knowledge, students interested in communication studies will better understand the avenues and careers available to them.

    The book is organized into four sections, which correspond to the four primary fields of communication: interpersonal, instructional, and health communication; mass communication; strategic and organizational communication; and intercultural and communication for social change. Each section provides an introduction to the communication field, followed by an exploration of research within the field to promote deeper understanding and scholarly interest. Featuring content written by a variety of experts within the field, the book helps students explore relational sharing, cancer communication, mass media and gender identity, digital communication, pop culture and communication, and more.

    Engrossing, scholarly, and designed to pique students’ interest in the discipline, Diving Deeper into Communication is well suited for foundational courses in communication.

    Kate S. Kurtin is an associate professor of communication studies at California State University, Los Angeles. She holds a Ph.D. in mass communication from the University of Connecticut, a M.A. in advertising and communication research from Boston University, and a B.A. in sociology from Occidental College. Dr. Kurtin’s current research focuses on the media’s effect on children and the evolving way that young people use media within this frame.
