Speech Com­muni­ca­tion is the study of how people create shared meaning through the use of verbal and non­verbal symbols. Speech Com­muni­ca­tion majors work to develop con­fi­dence and pro­fi­cien­cy in their ability to speak in small and large groups, in­ter­act ef­fec­tive­ly with others in inter­per­son­al and group settings, and think crit­ical­ly as it relates to argu­men­ta­tion and adv­o­cacy.

The Speech Comm­uni­ca­tion Field of Study is designed to provide the ap­pro­priate curriculum for students transferring into a Bachelor of Arts program with a major in Speech Communication or Communication Studies and provides many of the foundational courses for Public Relations and Mass Communication.
