Communications is a study field that deals with human communication processes which aim to share the meaningful information.

Researchers aim to explain human communication issues and usually focus on empirical methods as experimental design, surveys, focus groups, interviews and quasi-experimental design. The discipline also is based on sociology, psychology, biology, political sciences, economics, anthropology, public policy, mathematics, information science and etc. The study field is closely related to modern information sharing technologies such as radio, television, mass media, social-networks. Graduates can work in advertising, marketing, public relations, radio, television, writing, publishing, journalism, electronic journalism, PR or online media.
