Interpersonal communication crosses multiple disciplines.  The principles of interpersonal communication are addressed in the literature of many fields, including sociology, psychology, business, and medicine, among others.

Article indexes and databases in the field of Communication will be most useful, but subject databases in these other fields can provide additional information.

Many scholars in communication also write chapters for books, so the ASU Library online catalog is also an excellent resource for assignments in this course.
