Present Status of the Communication Discipline in India.
Jain, Nemi C.
An understanding of the present status of the teaching of communication in India is necessary to facilitate both the discipline's growth and the intercultural communication among scholars concerning communication education. Primary schools do not teach communication courses, and secondary schools include only a minimal amount of communication education, although both kinds of schools provide cocurricular and extracurricular communication activities. At the university level, there are no independent departments of communication or speech, but some communication topics are taught as part of other subjects or curricula, specifically agricultural extension or extension education journalism or mass communication, English and other Indian languages, and the teaching of languages.
