ABSTRACT
This article presents the scope and function of the various divisions of the Speech Communication Association in the U.S. The Instructional Development division has its focus on instruction, research and administration in speech education at all levels. While, the Interpersonal and Small Group Interaction division has as its principal concern interactive and transactive communication. This form of communication is characterized by discontinuous discourse and immediate feedback but is not confined to these processes. The principal method of inquiry will usually be behavioral but may include other forms of investigation. The most important concern of the division is the development of theory and the diffusion of this theory at all instructional levels. The Mass Communication division has as its purpose to advance the study and teaching of the process and effects of mediated communication. On the other hand, the purposes of the Public Address division shall be to promote study, criticism, research, teaching and application of the principles of speech communication in all forms of intentional and instrumental public oral discourse and dialogue. Likewise, the Speech Sciences division will concern itself with topics that may be approached through the scientific methodologies. Topics include, but are not limited to, studies of phonetics, voice, linguistics, foreign and bilingual students' instruction, speech pathology and audiology.
