Speech

Understanding the process of human communication is no less important in the Information Age than it was in the Golden Age of Greece and Rome. The emphasis in Speech Communication seeks to cultivate in its students highly developed skills in individual oral and written expression, critical thinking, group discussion and problem solving, and in conceptualizing the functions of communication. The Speech Communication emphasis is particularly oriented toward helping students understand how communication principles apply to a broad range of contexts, such as governmental agencies, health care providers, courtrooms, political campaigns, cross-cultural exchanges and social movements. In this way, students graduate with talents and knowledge that may serve them well in whatever personal, community, and professional directions they choose to pursue.
