Communication Studies

The Communication Studies program is designed to provide students with fundamental understanding of the principles of speech communication as well as experience in the application of these principles. Participation in these classes develops critical thinking, personal growth, research, presentation skills, and an understanding of diversity. Classes prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions and entry into careers in which effective communication skills are important, such as teaching, public relations, and law. This program fulfills typical lower-division requirements at four-year transfer institutions and offers opportunities to participate in intercollegiate competition in the areas of public speaking and oral interpretation. Some variation in requirements may exist at a particular four-year college or university; therefore, it is essential that the student also refer to the catalog of the prospective transfer institution and consult a counselor
