Abstract

Interpersonal communication has become a significant area of instruction and research. This national survey clarifies the status of the introductory and advanced courses a U.S. colleges and universities by examining materials employed, and course texts and contents. Results are presented for each course and are compared to an earlier study of interpersonal communication courses by Berryman and Weaver (1970).
