Welcome to the International Communication Association (ICA) Website.
ICA's mission is to bring together university scholars and other professionals around the world to share research and discuss important issues pertaining to human communication. The association's 3200 members participate in eighteen divisions and interest groups that explore diverse areas of inquiry and practice. These include interpersonal, mass, organizational, and international communication, often supported with information technologies, and focused on a plethora of important social topics such as education, gender, health, language, law, politics, and popular culture. Members approach the study of human communication from a variety of social scientific, humanistic, and philosophical perspectives using diverse theoretical, methodological, and political orientations.
