Anatomy of the Two Subdisciplines of Communication Study.
Rogers, Everett M.
Human Communication Research, v25 n4 p618-31 Jun 1999
Suggests that the field of communication study is divided into two subdisciplines: mass communication versus interpersonal communication. Expresses the division by (1) lack of cross-citations between five mass-communication journals and five interpersonal-communication journals; (2) separation of the two subdisciplines in communication associations; and (3) awarding of doctoral degrees in programs specializing in mass communication or interpersonal communication.
