Overview

"Applying Communication Theory for Professional Life: A Practical Introduction is the first communication theory textbook to provide practical material for career-oriented students. The inclusion and analysis of real-world case studies illustrate the application of theory in a variety of professional settings." "Whereas other communication theory texts have a more academic focus on theory or research methods, Applying Communication Theory for Professional Life is specifically designed to introduce communication theory in a tangible way." Applying Communication Theory for Professional Life is recommended as the core text for upper-level undergraduate or graduate communication theory courses. It is also appropriate as a supplementary text for courses in communication, business, and psychology.
