The Speech Program offers courses to equip students with communication skills that are vital in today’s ever-changing workplace. Courses range from public speaking skills that emphasize personal adjustment to anxiety and the preparation of various types of speeches to interpersonal communication where the students can explore their relationships and impacts on their career. Communication theory and application as well as adaptability to mediated channels are explored in the speech curriculum.

Courses are offered in various formats including face-to-face, hybrid, and online to accommodate to student schedules and a variety of degree completion needs. Students who are enrolled in intensive clinical programs find the hybrid courses beneficial for completion of requirements. The hybrid course meets during evening class sessions while completing the rest of the work online. The Speech Program also has dual credit and College Now opportunities for high school students wanting to get a jump start on their college education.
