The number-one skill identified by employers is the ability to communicate clearly in both oral and written form. The number-two skill identified by employers is the ability to work effectively as a member of a group or team. Speech courses are vital to developing the communication skills necessary for personal and professional success.

Speech Communication courses offer instruction and practice in a variety of communication settings. The program includes theory and practice in public speaking, group work, and interpersonal relationships. Critical thinking, listening, and communicating across cultures are also part of the program.

Human Resource officers again and again claim the top skills they are seeking in employees are the ability to communicate in spoken and written form, plus the ability to be an effective team member. Speech communication courses are essential for personal and professional growth.
