Stahle, Renee Beth
A study assessed the status of the undergraduate communication theory course at small and large colleges. An investigation of communication theory course descriptions (offered by 261 communication programs) found that the course is taught at both small and large colleges, but there is little general agreement about what should be covered in the communication theory course beyond a general survey of major theories. Findings suggest that there is little by way of a common core of knowledge that communication students receive in the undergraduate theory course.
