Communication Studies courses cover both communication and speech skills. They are designed to teach students how to navigate the world of communications in groups, intercultural settings, interpersonal relationships, organizations, and society. "Comm" courses provide instruction in group dynamics, problem solving, interpersonal communication, intercultural communication, and communication theory. These courses weave together theory and practice in interesting and helpful ways.
Speech courses are designed to prepare students for public presentations and debates of all types. Among the speech offerings, hybrid and online courses supplement already diverse curricula, giving students alternate ways of learning material and practicing concepts.
